Bad Weather Coming to the Chicagoland area.
Bad Weather Coming to the Chicagoland area.

A powerful storm has set its sights on the Chicago area for Wednesday evening, bringing with it damaging winds and heavy rains.

Wednesday morning will begin fairly calm, quiet and breezy, as winds pick up and gain strength throughout the afternoon and into the evening hours. The day will begin with sunny, warm skies and highs in the low 60s before giving way to increasing cloud coverage.

The storm system is expected to be a prolific wind producer for the area, gusts reaching upwards of 50 mph. The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory that is set to go into effect 6 p.m. Wednesday and will remain through 6 p.m. Thursday.

Winds are expected to be so powerful that driving may be difficult, according to the advisory, especially for high profile vehicles. Motorists are urged to be alert and use caution.

Weather Update: Rain will not come until after rush hour, with isolated showers beginning after 6 p.m. and getting stronger from 8 to 10 p.m. and throughout the evening.

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency on Tuesday issued an alert encouraging residents to stay aware of local forecasts and “be prepared to act quickly if storm warnings are issued.”
