URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
359 AM EDT Fri Sep 21 2018

...GALES TODAY INTO TONIGHT...

.A strengthening low pressure system will exit Lake Superior into
Ontario this morning. This low will pull a cold front through the
Great Lakes today which will result in a window of showers and
possibly thunderstorms. In addition, a tight pressure gradient and
strong wind field very low in the column will combine to produce
gale force winds today into tonight across the Lake Huron basin. The
day will begin with low end southwesterly gales ahead of the front
but as northwest flow ushers in colder air behind the front early
this afternoon, winds will increase to around 40 to 45 knots.
Farther away from the center of the low, Lakes St Clair and Erie
will likely stay below gales today thus the small craft advisories
will continue. The caveat would be any brief higher gust along or
just behind the front. High pressure will build in quickly behind
this system by Saturday, bringing improved marine conditions for
the weekend.
