Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville, IL
610 AM CDT Sun Apr 2 2023
.SHORT TERM… Issued at 218 AM CDT Sun Apr 2 2023
Only forecast concern are winds this afternoon/evening.
High pressure will move east of the area this morning and the gradient will tighten today with southerly winds expected to gust into the 30-35 mph range which will continue into the early evening and then should steadily diminish as a weak cool front moves into the area tonight. This frontal boundary will move into central IL and central IN Monday with northeasterly winds developing across the area.
There will be increasing chances for showers on Monday with the best chances likely in the afternoon but this activity is likely to remain scattered and its possible that much of the morning will remain dry but held onto low chance pops for now.
Highs today are likely to reach the upper 50s/lower 60s and with mainly sunny skies, its possible high temps end up a little warmer. Highs on Monday are a bit more uncertain. Northeasterly winds will keep temps closer to the lake cooler. If mostly cloudy skies materialize, temps may only reach mid/upper 50s but if enough sun breaks through the clouds, lower/mid 60s will be possible further inland and also south of the frontal boundary, should that still be in the southern cwa. cms/NWS Chicago
