Small Craft Advisory


URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
415 AM EST Fri Nov 16 2018

...GUSTY WINDS AND HIGH WAVES TODAY AND TONIGHT...

.Southwest winds will become west northwest and gusty today as low
pressure exits to the east. Gusts to marginal gales will be possible
across the open northern and central Lake Huron waters especially
late this afternoon through this evening, with gusts of 20-30 knots
possible across the rest of the local waters. The combination of
gusty winds and elevated waves will lead to hazardous small craft
conditions across outer Saginaw Bay and the Lake Huron nearshore
waters from Port Austin to Port Hope. Despite a passing quick-moving
upper-level disturbance Saturday, building high pressure will allow
northwest winds to slacken with gusts generally less than 20 knots.
Gusts will increase to near 30 knots at times Sunday as the pressure
gradient tightens between high pressure over the central Plains and
low pressure tracking across lower Hudson Bay. Rain and snow showers
will continue to be possible today, gradually diminishing in
coverage as the day progresses. Additional rain and snow showers
will again be possible Saturday before conditions dry out Sunday.
