6:07 pm
they are cancelling and they said we should ask jetblue for the money. at this point, get me home and i'll get reimbursements later. >> reporter: oakland faced cancellations but sfo was hardest hit and because of the last-minute changes, this ten-year-old is nervous about flying to florida alone. >> yeah. >> reporter: i certainly felt for that little girl and her grandparent whose had to put her on a plane. jetblue expects all operations will be back to normal by around noontime our time. passengers are waiting to see if that will happen. it's not the on airline with delays. if travel is in your future, check with whatever your carrier might be. >> thank you, chris. more details, the record-breaking temperatures aren't just holding up travel but keeping millions of people indoors. this is what it looked like in downtown chicago today. barely a soul in sight. nbc bay area chief meteorologist
6:08 pm
jeff joins us with a term we hardly hear. >> that's polar vortex. a lot of you hear the word a lot. polar means very cold. vortex in weather terms is just a circulation of the atmosphere. you talk about a cold circulation, and the key thing about a polar vortex, it is persistent year round. we don't talk about it a lot because it's around the north pole and can span around 1,000 miles. the thing we've seen over the past three to four days is it's shifted well off to the south throughout the great lakes and this is funneling in bitter cold air. it does look like, in fact, we'll see this polar air stay here across the eastern u.s. at least definitely throughout tomorrow. look at the current temperatures now. this is not the windchill factor. this is the air temperature, again. minus 11. almost hard to say in chicago. minus 15 in minneapolis, then also detroit at minus 13. warmer weather is on the way. we think by thursday, that polar
6:09 pm
vortex will shift more to the north and that will bring us temperatures 35 to 45 degrees warmer. in fact, chicago by thursday should have 37, not quite shorts weather, but i'm sure some folks in chicago might be wearing short-sleeved shirts, you never know, because it will feel so much warmer. more in the forecast in the frustrating issue of no rainfall and how close the rain is tonight in a few minutes. >> jeff, we'll see you in little bit. a story of perseverance. chief harold returned to his job nearly eight months after breaking his neck on a fall from a ladder at his home. he spent 6 six days in the hospital, under went multiple surgeries and months of rehab. previously he was a search and rescue expert. he says he's humbled by the change in his life and feels lucky his new position is an administrative one. >> if i was a firefighter on the floor, this wouldn't work, but,

6:46 pm
jacket tonight. currently again light winds, as well. up against the immediate coastline, it's strong enough we think tonight we may have drizzle if you're traveling right up against the coastline. it looks very impressive. a lot of storm activity all getting close to california, but there is a slight rise in that storm track and unfortunately, in the same place it has been for the past three weeks, which means, at this point most of the storm systems that will be following that storm track will likely shift here off to the north as we head throughout the next two to three-day pattern. not good news for rainfall here across the bay area. as we look at the tuesday forecast, you'll find temperatures, they will be generally right near average. 63 san jose, partly cloudy. and you can see for san francisco with more of that on shore flow returning, temperatures in the upper 50s and partly cloudy skies. i do want to take you here into san jose.

6:48 pm
delays as we head throughout tomorrow morning. i really think some of the worst will be in chicago any time the planes have to deice, you can wait on the tarmac 30 minutes to two hours. temperatures of minus 37 with windchill and new york city minus 12 and boston will feel like minus five. again, bit early cold there across a lot of the u.s. and for us back here at home, it's another week where you need to take the light jacket in the forecast will feel colder again after a milder start to 2014. liver more expecting by thursday just again, low 60s, santa rosa upper 50s, as well. compared to the cold weather across a lot of east coast, these temperatures, you guys, are feeling very comfortable here across the bay area. can't argue with this. >> i feel bad when i talk to my friends and family in new york. >> i know. >> not that bad, though. >> thanks, jeff. levi has paid $220 million for the naming rights and now you can see the sign on the 49ers new home. the bay area-based clothing
