[APRIL 3, 2006]  Deep low pressure over the southern Great Lakes has brought windy conditions to central Illinois today (Monday). The National Weather Service in Lincoln issued a wind advisory in effect until 3 p.m.

The advisory is for the counties of Knox, Stark, Peoria, Marshall, Woodford, Fulton, Tazewell, McLean, Schuyler, Mason, Logan, DeWitt, Piatt, Champaign, Vermilion, Cass, Menard, Scott, Morgan, Sangamon, Christian, Macon, Moultrie, Douglas and Edgar, including the cities of Galesburg, Peoria, Bloomington, Normal, Havana, Lincoln, Champaign, Urbana, Danville, Jacksonville, Springfield, Taylorville and Decatur.

A tight pressure gradient around low pressure across the Great Lakes is creating the gusty winds across central Illinois. During the morning hours, winds gusting to around 45 mph at times were expected, particularly across locations along and north of Interstate 72. As the low pulls farther away from the region, winds will gradually subside during the afternoon.

A wind advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph are expected, with gusts to 45 mph. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
