...Small Craft Advisory Across Northern Thumb Zones...

.Strong northwest wind will develop and gust to near-gales again this

the Great Lakes region late Saturday into Monday, gust potential
limited by the stable southerly fetch. Conditions become more
unsettled for the remainder of next week as the pattern becomes more
active and colder air filters into the region.
