Morning Surface Weather
Low Pressure is moving through the Great Lakes this morning and will be responsible for pulling in very strong winds by mid day and this afternoon. This will be warm, and somewhat humid day, but the wind may make it feel more like you are on a southern Caribbean island like Aruba. Keep telling yourself that…
Yesterday, we didn’t reach 70ºF because the wind direction remained with an easterly component from the Bay. Today will be different, which is why we have a better chance to push over computer model forecast highs.
Already into the 60s before sunrise!
A Wind Advisory has been issued for much of the region today. This kicks in later this morning and ends this evening. Wind Gusts may reach as high as 50 mph, which is strong enough to break small branches and move lawn furniture. An animation of the wind timeline is below.
