The weather conditions that we will have to deal with Tuesday are gusty winds and cold wind chill factors. Winds will be sustained out of the north around 15-25 mph with peak winds up to 35 mph. With temperatures only reaching into the mid and upper 30s, our wind chill factors will range in the lower 20s.
Now think about this: If the storm system were moved 100 miles to the west, we would have to deal with a whole other ordeal. In northern Indiana, which is just 100 miles to our east, they will have to deal with wind driven rain during the day, then a rain/snow mix that afternoon. Winds will gust up to 45 mph, with an estimated one to two inches of rainfall.
