Wind Advisory for northeast Illinois, a portion of northwest Indiana and all of Wisconsin from 3PM CST this Monday afternoon until 6AM CST Tuesday

You can expect winds WSW 15-30 miles per hour with gusts 30-45 miles per hour this afternoon and that may cause some power outages and put some of your holiday decorations at risk.

Winds will peak sometime Tuesday afternoon, calm down some on Wednesday, and then return on Thursday.

Sunny, with a high near 65.

Temperatures will warm, with a good chance of hitting mid to lower 50s around Billings on Thursday and Friday. Initially, the stronger southerly winds this afternoon into early this evening will affect travel on east-west roadways, but by late tonight with the gusty west winds, the north-south roads may become hard to navigate. After a diminished period Monday evening, winds will shift west and increase to 20 - 35mph with gusts to around 45mph overnight into Tuesday afternoon. Saturday morning snow showers may be a bit heavier and lay down a quick coating.

The rest of the workweek is expected to be dry until a reinforcing push of cold air sweeps in Friday night. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent.
