URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DETROIT/PONTIAC MI
342 AM EDT TUE AUG 22 2017

...INCREASING NORTHWEST WINDS LATE THIS AFTERNOON...

.MODERATE SOUTHWEST WIND WILL CONTINUE OVER MARINE AREAS DURING THE
MORNING AHEAD OF A STRENGTHENING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND COLD FRONT.
EARLY MORNING OBSERVATIONS OVER THE SOUTHERN GREAT LAKES INDICATE
WIND CONDITIONS HOLDING BELOW SCA THRESHOLDS LEAVING WIDESPREAD
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT AS THE
PRIMARY MARINE WEATHER IMPACT BEFORE THE FRONTAL PASSAGE. SAGINAW
BAY WILL BE AN AREA TO WATCH FOR FUNNELING OF ENHANCED SOUTHWEST
FLOW THAT COULD PRODUCE GUSTS AROUND 25 KNOTS AT TIMES.

LOW PRESSURE NEAR THE STRAITS DURING THE MORNING WILL MOVE TOWARD
JAMES BAY AND DEEPEN CONSIDERABLY DURING THE AFTERNOON BASED ON THE
LATEST MODEL DEPICTIONS. THE STRONGER TREND ON THIS SYSTEM NOW MAKES
NORTHWEST GALES LIKELY OVER THE OPEN WATERS OF NORTHERN LAKE HURON
BEGINNING LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT AND A GALE WARNING IS IN
EFFECT DURING THIS TIME. WAVES EXCEEDING SCA THRESHOLD WILL BRUSH
THE NORTHERN THUMB TONIGHT WHERE A SCA IS IN EFFECT. ELSEWHERE, THE
WIND PATTERN WILL BE FROM THE NORTHWEST ENOUGH TO KEEP THE HIGHEST
WAVES OFFSHORE OF THE SOUTHERN LAKE HURON NEARSHORE ZONES AND
GENERALLY IN THE 1 TO 3 FT RANGE ON SAGINAW BAY BEFORE THE WIND
WEAKENS WEDNESDAY AND THEN VEERS TOWARD THE NORTH THURSDAY. AS THE
WIND DIMINISHES, THE INCOMING AIR MASS WILL BE COLD ENOUGH TO
PRODUCE INSTABILITY OVER THE WATER ADEQUATE FOR MARGINAL WATERSPOUT
POTENTIAL.

* HIGH WAVE ACTION... STRONG CURRENTS AND DANGEROUS SWIMMING
  CONDITIONS EXPECTED.

* STRONG STRUCTURAL CURRENTS EXPECTED.

* STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENTS EXPECTED.

NORTH BEACH IN SOUTH HAVEN...   HOLLAND STATE PARK... MUSKEGON
STATE PARK...   MEARS STATE PARK IN PENTWATER... STEARNS PARK IN
LUDINGTON.

* OVERVIEW/POTENTIAL IMPACTS...WINDS WILL VEER TO THE WEST TO
  NORTHWEST AND INCREASE TO 15 TO 25 MPH TODAY. WAVES WILL BUILD
  TO 5 TO 7 FEET TODAY AND WILL CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY. NORTH
  SIDES OF NORTH PIERS WILL BE DANGEROUS PLACES TO SWIM.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

HIGH WAVE ACTION MAKES SWIMMING DIFFICULT AND CAN TIRE EVEN A
STRONG SWIMMER QUICKLY.

STRUCTURAL CURRENTS FORM ALONG PIERS WHERE LONGSHORE CURRENTS AND
WAVE ACTION FLOW INTO THE STRUCTURE. STRUCTURAL CURRENTS CAN
SWEEP YOU OUT INTO DEEPER WATER ALONG THE PIER STRUCTURE.

A LONGSHORE CURRENT IS A LAKE CURRENT THAT MOVES PARALLEL TO
SHORE. LONGSHORE CURRENTS CAN BE STRONG ENOUGH TO PREVENT
SWIMMERS FROM BEING ABLE TO KEEP THEIR FEET ON THE BOTTOM...
MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO RETURN TO SHORE.

RIP CURRENTS ARE POWERFUL CHANNELS OF WATER FLOWING QUICKLY AWAY
FROM SHORE...WHICH OCCUR MOST OFTEN AT LOW SPOTS OR BREAKS IN
SANDBARS. RIP CURRENTS CAN SWEEP YOU INTO DEEPER WATER.
