windyWinds across the area will increase through out the day. Our Wind Advisory is in effect for all of Northern Illinois from 1pm to 7pm today. Expect South winds sustained up to 20-30 mph, frequent gusts up to 40 mph and random gusts around 45 mph. The winds can affect your driving especially on East/West bound roads. Also, watch out for objects being blown across the roadways. The windy conditions are a result of the storm system off to our West that will also give us a round of strong to sever storms by Friday late afternoon. Some of these storms, if they become well organized could produce large hail and damaging winds. sevwxThe Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK still has us under a slight risk for tomorrow.

    Are these storms still forecast to arrive after dark like Eric mentioned yesterday? Or could we see some with daytime heating

    From the observations I have been seeing, looks like rockford has had near 50mph wind gusts.
