Yes Winds are looking to be the main threat tonight!!!!!
I'M seeing the High Wind Warnings already in IL, and we have already been seeing wind gusts to 40 mph here at home outside of storms! Now if we look more to our west and just west of Danville IL, they have seen gusts to 45 mph and in storms in West IL, they have had gusts to 50 mph! Yes we can say this is heading our way here before long! Winds will be our main threat tonight. As for severe weather not so much as we will see this line keep weakening as it moves in. Now we won't see the rain start until closer to 8:pm this evening and the winds will stick around till closer to 2:am before we start to see them calm down a bit! All we can do for now is drive safely if you have to go out and be sure to hold on to your hats as well ;)
Here is a quick high wind report from West IL, I have posted below. Wind is going to be our main threat and rainfall will still be between a half inch to a possible three quarters of an inch.

TIME ESTIMATED. BARN BLOWN OVER. ROOF BLOWN OFF. PIECE OF TIN SPREAD ABOUT THE AREA...WITH ONE PIECE WRAPPED AROUND A TREE. (DVN)
We seen a high today of 75* degrees and just north and west of home they are only in the 20s and 30s in SD, areas. So it is safe to say cooler temperatures will work there way into our area as this cold front pushes through our area. No not to the 20s as a high but still cooler.
I will pop back in with another update here real soon so be sure to check back!
