There is also a wind advisory in place Tuesday and a freeze warning for Tuesday night.

Gradient winds will increase to 15-20 mph Tuesday afternoon and gusts could top 30 mph.
The FOX6 StormWarn team is also monitoring a thunderstorm threat for Friday. By then temperatures should make a huge recovery into the 70s. Currently, the threat for severe weather is low but we could see strong winds.
