URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
340 AM EDT Tue Oct 23 2018

...Gusty Northwest Winds and Large Waves...

.A cold front will track south of the region as low pressure
continues east into southeast Ontario early this morning. In the
wake of this front, northwest winds will gust consistently in the 25
to occasional 30 knot range over parts of the open waters of Lake
Huron today before edging down tonight as high pressure begins to
build in from the west. The limited duration and marginal nature of
this event does not support a Gale Warning. However, the northwest
flow will lead to building waves which will impact nearshore waters
today into early Wednesday. A Small Craft Advisory has been issued
for these anticipated wave conditions as well as wind gusts to 25
knots during the day today. Winds will become light Wednesday night
and Thursday as another large area of high pressure builds into the
region.
