This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Nearshore
waters of western Lake Superior.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Cold air advection across western Lake Superior will result in
continued strong northwest winds today. Areas along the north
shore will experience particularly strong winds due to katabatic
drainage from the high terrain to the lake surface. Sustained
winds from Two Harbors to Hovland will be in the 15 to 25 knot
range with occasional gales as high as 40 knots possible.
Elsewhere, winds of 10 to 20 knots are expected with gusts to 25
knots. The wind speeds will decrease through today and Small Craft
Advisories have been extended while winds are strongest. Please
see the latest Marine Weather Message and Nearshore Marine
Forecast for additional details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A clipper system will move through the region Sunday and Sunday
night. Southwest wind speeds will increase on Sunday and then
veer northwesterly behind a cold front associated with the
clipper. The combination of winds and waves may create conditions
hazardous to smaller vessels.
