Ahead of the potent cold front that will pass through the region overnight, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the western suburbs. The watch is in effect from 8 p.m. tonight to 4 a.m. Wednesday morning:

* TIMING...WINDS WILL INCREASE TONIGHT AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT. THE STRONGEST WINDS WILL TAKE PLACE BETWEEN 8PM AND 4AM.

* WINDS...GUSTS WILL REACH 50 MPH...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE BLUE RIDGE.

These winds are simply associated with the front and are separate from and possibly not as strong as the winds that may develop in thunderstorms passing through overnight.
