Wind Delay Likeliness

I am flying out of ORD on Thursday and have a tighter layover I have to make.

There is a foretasted winds west at 20-30mph for the afternoon when I am supposed to leave.

Do you think this would delay a departure at ORD? I think most runways run east-west so I don't think these would be crosswinds and therefor not an issue, correct?

Winds today are WSW at 24 with no operational impact, and given it's the day after Christmas with a higher flight schedule in place, I wouldn't be worried.
