High wind warnings, watches issued

High wind warnings and watches are in effect from 4 p.m. today (Sunday) until 4 a.m. tomorrow for the entire region. Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop along the Lake Michigan shore and move east late this afternoon. Wind gusts to 60 miles per hour are possible, which could cause power outages and make driving difficult, especially on north-south roads.  It'll be unseasonably warm today with highs in the mid to upper 60s.   More rain is expected overnight with temperatures in the 40s, and tomorrow (Monday) we'll have a chance of snow and rain,  with highs in the low 40s. Things should calm down on Tuesday, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 40s.
