Early Monday, Metra issued a service alert warning that while it would "make every reasonable effort to assure your timely and comfortable commute ... weather conditions beyond our control will likely create unanticipated delays or service disruptions."

According to the alert, "Depending on the severity of conditions in specific areas on Monday, February 10, 2014, your train may experience delays due to temperature-related speed restrictions. Metra will continue to utilize all possible measures available to combat extraordinary weather conditions. Please allow extra travel time to assure your safe passage to and from your destination.:
