Open Lake Forecast for Lake Erie
National Weather Service Cleveland OH
345 AM EST Thu Nov 23 2017

For waters beyond five nautical miles of shore on Lake Erie

Waves are the significant wave height - the average of the highest
1/3 of the wave spectrum. Occasional wave height is the average of
the highest 1/10 of the wave spectrum.

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure 30.30 inches will move off the Middle
Atlantic Coast today. This will allow a weakening cold front to
move toward the north shore of the lake before dissipating. Low
pressure will deepen to 29.10 inches as it moves from central
Ontario to Central Quebec friday into Saturday. As it does it
will drag a cold front across the lake by sunrise on Saturday.
High pressure 30.30 inches will move up the Ohio valley Sunday and
then off the Carolina coast by late Monday.
