A Wind Advisory has been issued for all of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin lasting through Thursday.

Northeast winds have been increasing Wednesday evening as low pressure strengthens over the central Plains.  Sustained winds are anywhere between 20-30 mph, but wind gusts have been close to 50 mph over northwest Illinois!  Strong northeast winds will continue into Thursday before relaxing a little by Thursday night.  The strong winds will make travel difficult Thursday, especially for high profile vehicles.
