The National Weather Service says “a robust early spring storm system” will arrive in our area Friday afternoon.

The forecasters say “all severe weather hazards are possible, including significant damaging winds and strong tornadoes.

Wind speeds could reach 50 miles per hour late this afternoon and into Saturday morning. But the weather service says the worst conditions are likely to be south of Evanston — in the area south of I-80.
