I don't think I'll be heading that far North. If you live out there though, it should be good up until about 10... even though it'll be mostly onshore.

I'm in Naperville in the cold months (Grand Haven for the summer) but it looks like Michigan City and Gary would be worse...

Looks like enough east in the wind, so it`s Waukegan for me.
Leaving now, hope the wind holds.
