Gusty Winds Follow The Storms

Good Sunday, folks. Showers and storms are pulling away from the state, but the gusty winds continue out there today. These winds may be on the high side as temps come down from our recent run of record/near record highs. In the week ahead, we track a few more systems as we close March and begin April.

First things first, let’s track the early morning showers and storms…

Winds today will be very gusty and could top 40mph at times through the day. Temps will be in the 65-70 degree range for many.

Monday looks pretty good with 40s in the morning and low to mid 60s in the afternoon. Clouds will increase ahead of our Tuesday chilly rain maker…



Early showers on Wednesday will slowly move away with better weather by the end of the week. Temps look to rebound to near normal..

The models aren’t quite as cool looking as before, but they have been bouncing around a lot. Still, the pattern remains active looking…

I will hook you up with another update later today. Make it a good one and take care

    I remember reading a previous comment about how we rarely get just regular thunderstorms. Last night, we actually got a normal Spring/Summer thunderstorm. Just rain, lightning, and thunder. We didn’t get the severe side. That was an awesome change. It’s rare now that we get regular ol’ Thunderstorms. It was quite peaceful without hail, wind, and severe threats. Wish we got more normal storms.

    On the Kentucky Mesonet in my county of Taylor, I received 0.21 inches of rain early this morning and the peak wind gust was 42 mph. It’s a nice sunny, but breezy day. Looks like next week we will be back to normal ” temperature wise ” and hopefully not so stormy. Everyone try and make it a peaceful Sunday.

    It was a very windy, chilly day in the Chicago area, with west winds gusting between 40 and 50 MPH all day. With cloudy skies and temps in the mid to upper 40s, that made it feel quite a bit cooler.

    The official high, though, was 63 degrees at O’Hare Airport, as that was the temp just after midnight on Sunday before falling. It was 67 degrees late on Saturday night, which tied for the warmest temp of the year. No 60 in sight though for at least the next week here.
