Windy Enough For You?

Winds are sustained as high as 30 MPH across cities in the Midwest such as Chicago and Milwaukee today, as a strong warm front pulls warm air north into the region.

Wind gust forecasts from the GFS model at 10 PM (CT) this evening show gusts as high as 50 MPH over Lake Michigan, with over 40 MPH wind gusts possible on land, especially in the Western Great Lakes. The increase in wind will come as a cold front sweeps across the region and brings yet another cool down to the area.

Damage to trees, with branches being ripped off, has been reported. Are you in these chaotic winds?

Andrew I love your posts so much! I'm not a frequent commenter, but thes one had to be said. Because today, I was like "wow its windy out: I'll check The Weather Centre", and lo and behold, you have a post about the wind. Thank you for yet another accurate post. Are you planning on working for The Weather Channel when you grow up? They could certainly use talent like you. :)
