Overview

A rapidly developing area of low pressure over the Great Lakes region produced strong and persistent north to northwest winds over an extended time period. The high winds began around midnight on the 16th along the Lake Huron coast and was impacting the entire forecast area by daybreak. This strong and persistent wind caused lakeshore flooding, beach erosion that is beginning to threaten homes, and flooded local parks, roads, and boat launches. Along with these high winds and flooding some parts across the Tip of the Mitt and near the Straits of Mackinac saw between 1-3 inches of rainfall by 8 pm Wednesday.
