In Chicago, where the mercury dipped as low as minus 22 Fahrenheit (minus 30 Celsius) earlier this week, temperatures of 19F (minus 7C) on Friday morning felt positively balmy for some in the nation’s third-largest city. “Today’s wonderful because it’s not below zero,” said Mary Crissie, 47, who said she closed her deli franchise in the Loop, Chicago’s downtown financial district, on Wednesday. “The Loop was a ghost town.” Temperatures from southern New England to the Upper Midwest should reach the mid-40s to low 50s Fahrenheit through the weekend and Monday, forecasters said, after a record-breaking cold snap that stopped mail deliveries in some parts of the Midwest and shuttered schools and businesses.
