The extreme cold has forced skaters off the ice, at least temporarily.The Chicago Park District decided to close all the city's eight outdoor ice rinks as a safety precaution.

Temperatures stayed in the single digits on Monday and when you factor in the wind chill it felt like it was well below zero.

Park district officials expect to reopen the rinks on Tuesday.
