A quick moving low pressure system sweeping across the Central U.S. will bring strong winds to the forecast today. Gusty conditions are expected from Minnesota down into the Tennessee Valley. Here is the very latest.
Many counties are included in a wind advisory for this afternoon. These are the areas where wind gusts could exceed 45 mph. This means driving may become difficult, especially on north- south oriented roadways such as I-55, I-57, and I-155. Also, any unsecured outdoor items could easily blow away.
