Share this post

As the East Coast braces for Hurricane Sandy, here in the Region, meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Chicago are anticipating the primary local impact to be powerful northerly winds over and near Lake Michigan that will increase tonight through the middle of next week "around the outer influence of Sandy and its remnants.  Gale force winds will occur, with even storm force winds possible over the water.  For more, see the NWS Great Lakes Portal and the latest Lake Michigan Forecast.  Wind to similar magnitude could be seen into Lake and Porter Counties, IN, and possibly Cook County, IL.  A High Wind Watch has been issued for these counties.  With the forecast winds as well as waves at or in excess of 20 ft near the shore, a Lakeshore Flood Warning has been issued.  Impacts may be similar to the September 30-October 1, 2011 storm."
