237 PM CDT Sat Oct 15 2022
Issued at 235 PM CDT Sat Oct 15 2022
A surface high to our west will slip to our south and southeast today, with mostly clear skies and westerly winds becoming southwesterly. Winds will be gusty this afternoon, with gusts up to 25 mph. Cloud cover associated with an approaching front will increase later this afternoon into the evening, but will move off to the east after midnight. No precipitation is expected from this overnight front. Winds will remain a bit gusty this evening, with gusts up to 20 mph possible, but decreasing after midnight. 850 MB temperatures, which started out below 0 C, will climb to around 5 C tonight, which is still below the normal 8 C. This slight increase and slight southerly flow will lead to lows several degrees warmer Sunday morning, ranging from the mid 30s to the north, to around 40 to the south and across Chicago. Temperatures to the north will still be cold enough to create some spotty frost along and north of I-88, and away from Chicago, early Sunday morning.
Sunday morning will start with mostly clear skies, but clouds will increase once again midday as a stratocumulus deck develops from a reinforcing shot of cold air Sunday afternoon. Temperatures between 900 and 800 MB will drop below freezing, with a bit of elevated CAPE within the cloud deck, which may lead to a chance for some isolated showers Sunday afternoon, mainly in northeast Illinois. Winds will increase again Sunday afternoon with gusts of 25 to 30 mph. Cold air advection (CAA) at the surface will not start until the later afternoon/early evening, with Sunday high temperatures in the 50s.
