Today's Weather: The Hawk Returns

By Chuck Sudo in News on Jan 31, 2011 1:30PM

Hope you enjoyed the thaw a bit last week, because if both Accuweather and Skilling and Co. are to be believed, we're in for heavy east winds today to go with the clouds and a high in the mid-20's. The winds will be coming off the lake at 10-20 MPH. The clouds are predicted to thicken this afternoon, bringing tidings of snow through Wednesday. The National Weather Service has issued a lakeshore flood watch until 3 p.m. tomorrow. Those winds are due to pick up in intensity, whipping the lake into a frenzy.
