Windy and colder. Not as crazy as yesterday!
Behind yesterday’s low pressure system which generated a severe weather outbreak across Illinois, Indiana, and surrounding areas, today we’ve got to deal with the after-effects as that nasty storm system moves eastward. That means strong cold air from the west and gradually decreasing clouds as high pressure begins to build into the area. A new wind direction shift back from the south tomorrow will bring highs back into the 40s through Thursday, and a new storm system will bring another threat of rain on Wednesday and maybe a light mix Thursday night before getting really cold again for next weekend.
