...WATERSPOUTS LIKELY OVERNIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY...

LAKE EFFECT SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A THUNDERSTORM WILL SPREAD SOUTH
ACROSS THE LAKE TONIGHT AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY WEDNESDAY.
CONDITIONS WILL BE VERY FAVORABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF
WATERSPOUTS...INITIALLY OVER NORTHERN LAKE MICHIGAN
OVERNIGHT...WITH THE THREAT SPREADING TO SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE
LAKE BY EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING.

WATERSPOUTS CAN EASILY OVERTURN BOATS AND CREATE LOCALLY HAZARDOUS
SEAS. SMALL CRAFT COULD BE DAMAGED IN BRIEFLY HIGHER WINDS AND
SUDDENLY HIGHER WAVES. MARINERS ON LAKE MICHIGAN ARE URGED TO
EXERCISE CAUTION TONIGHT AND SEEK SAFE HARBOR IF THREATENING
WEATHER APPROACHES.
