As the Chicago area delves into a deep freeze for a second day, steam is rising from the frozen Lake Michigan as the air is significantly colder than the lake.


When it is this cold, the water vapor in the steam freezes into small ice crystals that give off a shiny glow when the light hits them. Those crystals are known as "diamond dust," that usually occurs in arctic areas.


Temperatures dropped to -29°C (-21°F) at O'Hare International Airport, which set a record low for January 31, 2019, in Chicago. The previous record low for January 31 was -24°C (-12°F) set in 1985. The record low for any time in Chicago is -32°C (-27°F).
