Skilling: Warmest day in 134 days, stormy week to follow

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

As a cold front approaches from the west and temperatures warm into the 60s, winds will strengthen out of the south – gusting to 40 miles per hour this afternoon. A north-south oriented band of showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop over western Illinois early this afternoon – move east and pass through the Chicago area later this afternoon and early evening.

With the strong southerly winds, trucks and high-profile vehicles will be buffeted – complicating driving conditions – especially for those traveling along east-west highways. Wind funneling could cause drivers to encounter sudden wind bursts, so caution is advised.

The cold front is forecast to move east through our area later tonight followed by gusty winds out of the west and cooler temperatures Tuesday.
