-11F with a windchill of -20F this morning when I woke up. Doesn't warm up much either.

Part of the cape froze over.

We got off relatively lightly with -5 F since, unusually for here, there's little wind.

What is the difference between "frigid" and "bitterly cold" - in weather terms I mean.

Wednesday is forcast for "bitterly cold" but Thursday will be "frigid". Which is coldest?

Nothing factual behind this whatsoever, but I always considered that "bitterly cold" implied a substantial wind-chill factor?

Maybe.

It's Chicago, so wind is almost always a factor. Maybe they get bored with just using one term and have to think up new ways to say "****ing cold".

The weather hurts today. It didn't feel like there was much wind either. I was out of my car without gloves for five minutes and I could barely move my fingers
