CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - Due to the dangerous weather conditions, Xfinity is offering free WiFi to all in the Chicago area until the end of January.
The company says all hotspots will be open through Thursday, Jan. 31.
The Windy City and other areas in the upper Midwest are preparing for historic cold later this week, with some weather projections predicting around -45 to -60 wind chills. The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said Monday that a storm system is bringing heavy snow over the Great Lakes on Monday before ushering in bitter cold air into the region.
"Some of the coldest air in decades will pour in across the Northern Plains, Midwest and Great Lakes with windchills in the -40 to -50 degree range and air temperatures below zero for several days," Fox News Senior Meterologist Janice Dean said Monday. "This will be dangerous and potentially deadly for these regions, and people need to stay inside."
