This storm system will be slow to move out of our area meaning we will keep a 20% chance of showers in the forecast for Wednesday as well.

As the system contimues to move East on Wednesday, this will increase wind speeds even more. Winds are expected to come from the West at 25-35 mph and gusts 40 mph.
