There’s been plenty of gusty winds to go around during the month of November.
Taking a quick peek at the month’s first 16 days, 5 of them have come in with a peak wind at or above 30 mph. 3 of those 5 occurred on a Thursday.
A cold front sliding through this morning will make for a breezy end to the work week. But fortunately, winds won’t be as strong as yesterday.
Much Cooler Friday:
With the passage of this morning’s cold front, this week’s 60° weather comes to a close. Cloud cover will accompany the front as well as the chance for an early-morning sprinkle/shower.
Around or shortly after sunrise, clouds will rapidly decrease, resulting in plenty of afternoon sun. However, left behind by this morning’s frontal passage will be a chilly northwest wind, which will hold highs in the upper 40s.
Expect skies to remain quiet overnight, with lows falling into the 20s.
Saturday features just as much sunshine. However, the difference-maker will be the direction in which our winds will be blowing. With a high pressure system sliding into central Illinois, winds locally will turn to the west-southwest.
This will help bring afternoon highs up a few degrees, with most peaking the low 50s. Temperatures remain in that range for Sunday afternoon!
