    A wind advisory and lakeshore flood advisory are in effect for Chicago. Powerful winds between 25 to 35 mph could gust up to 50 mph.

    Remember the joggers and bikers who got wiped out along the bike path on Lakeshore Drive a few weeks ago?

    Northwest Indiana is under a flood watch, and Hoosiers could also see an inch or two of slushy accumulation throughout the day.
