Open Lake Forecast for Lake Erie
National Weather Service Cleveland OH
326 PM EST Sat Feb 22 2020

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...
A ridge averaging 30.30 inches over Lake Erie will shift east and
be replaced by a low pressure trough by Sunday night. A weak cold
front sweeps southeastward over the lake Monday morning. The
front should become nearly-stationary over or near Lake Erie
later Monday through Tuesday night as low pressure 29.60 inches
moves northeastward from the southern Great Plains to central
Indiana by Tuesday morning. The low may then wobble in vicinity
of Lake Michigan through Wednesday. This should allow the
aforementioned frontal boundary to lift northward as a warm front
over Lake Erie on Tuesday, while the trailing cold front should
sweep eastward across the lake on Wednesday. By Thursday, the low
should become positioned near southwestern Quebec and deepen
toward 29.20 inches. Simultaneously, the low should extend a
trough over Lake Erie.
