Windy Evening & Overnight

Wind gusts at 5:00pm Friday

If you’ve stepped outside this evening, I’m sure you’ve noticed quite a difference from this morning.  The wind began to increase Friday afternoon behind the exiting system that brought our area 3 to 8 inches of snow.  The wind is currently blowing out of the west-northwest between 15 and 25 miles per hour.  Wind gusts were even higher across the region; gusting over 30 miles per hour at times.  Aurora reported a gust of 40mph within the 5:00pm hour.  As a result, our wind chills have dipped into the 10s!  The wind will gradually decrease overnight and the gusts will really calm down by tomorrow afternoon.  Saturday looks to be a bit chillier than today with highs only near freezing.  However, a mix of clouds and sun will help to melt some of that heavy, wet snow on the ground.  -JA
