…Strong winds expected through Tuesday…

An intensifying low pressure over the Upper Midwest will
strengthen rapidly overnight as it lifts north of the Great Lakes.
A cold front associated with the low will sweep across the area
after midnight.

Southerly winds will increase ahead of the front this evening and
into the overnight…with gusts peaking from 35 to 45 mph over
central Indiana. Additionally…a narrow band of showers and a
few rumbles of thunder are expected to accompany the cold front
as it tracks across the area from west to east between midnight
and 5 am. Some of the stronger winds aloft may be able to mix
down with the narrow band of showers with a few gusts possibly
reaching 50 to 55 mph at times.

Once the front tracks east of our area late tonight…winds will shift
to westerly. Winds will briefly diminish towards daybreak before
higher gusts of 30 to 40 mph return Tuesday afternoon.

The strong winds will cause travel difficulty for high profile
vehicles. Unsecured outdoor objects will also be be blown around
so take time to secure any loose lightweight items.
