A low pressure system will track eastward across Upper Michigan
today and exit the region tonight, while strengthening slightly.
Strong and gusty north-northwest winds are expected to develop on
the backside of this system late this afternoon across the west
and through the overnight hours across the central and east near
Lake Superior. Out west, especially near Lake Superior and across
the Keweenaw Peninsula, wind gusts of 35 to 40 mph will be
possible this evening through midnight. Near Lake Superior across
the central and eastern portions of Upper Michigan, wind gusts up
to 40 to 45 mph will be possible tonight through the early
morning hours on Thursday. Further inland from Lake Superior, wind
gusts could approach 30 to 35 mph at times.

These winds may be strong enough to break small tree limbs and
cause difficult travel conditions along west to east oriented
