Cold impacts Metra trains, causing delays on three lines- Milwaukee North, Milwaukee West and BNSF.

The two issues are not related, Metra said, and delays are 10 to 20 minutes, but could grow as the Friday afternoon rush hour moves along.

Switching problems are to blame for the issues on the Milwaukee North and West lines. Meanwhile, a rail problem is interrupting the BNSF line to Aurora at Highland Avenue.
