Gale Warning


URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
954 AM EDT Tue Oct 15 2019

...Northwest gusts to gales Wednesday afternoon into Thursday...

.Winds back to the southeast and strengthen over the course of this
afternoon as a strong low pressure system develops over northern
Wisconsin. Gusts over Lake Huron may reach the 25 to 30 kt range
this evening in advance of the system, but will weaken as the center
of the low moves over northern/central Lake Huron late tonight. The
system pushes a cold front through overnight and introduces moderate
westerly winds for early Wednesday, gusting to about 25 kt, in
addition to periods of showers. The main impact of this system will
be felt by late Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday as strong
northwest flow wraps around the low and gusts to gales over
central Lake Huron. Gale warnings are now in effect. The northwest
gradient remains elevated through Thursday as the low slowly
departs to the east.
