Wind Blows Through Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on December 10, 2009

For the Illinois Valley, the wind has packed a bigger punch with this week’s storm than snow.

According to the National Weather Service, the Peru Municipal Airport yesterday recorded a top wind gust of 49 miles per hour.  Airports in Pontiac and Kankakee had the highest wind gusts of regional airports in the Chicago area at 51 miles per hour.

The gusty wind has helped wind chills reach 20 below zero in some spots.
