...Windy Through Tuesday...

.DISCUSSION...an area of low pressure over Indiana this afternoon
will move north through Tuesday and rapidly strengthen as it
does. This will cause an extended period of windy conditions
across the region from tonight through Tuesday. Expected sustained
northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 35 to 45 mph, with
the highest wind speeds west of the Mississippi River. Along with
the windy conditions, there will also be some light rain from time
to time, especially along and east of Interstate 94 tonight.
Another system will drop out of Canada toward the end of the week
that will bring some precipitation chances to the area along with
the coolest air of the season so far. There will be some light
rain and snow chances from Thursday into Friday as overnight lows
fall into the 20s and lower 30s. Daytime highs to end the week and
into the weekend will mainly be in the 40s.
