Issued at 259 AM EDT Thu Mar 23 2017

Strong sfc high is east of the region with light southerly flow
developing. These southerly winds will increase through today and
tonight, but mainly just above the water sfc due to increasing
stability. Regardless, appears as though low end advisory level
gusts are possible in the srn Lake Huron and Lake Michigan
nearshores. Winds expected to weaken Friday as a sfc trough nears,
then pick back up again out of the east in advance of sfc low
pressure that could bring some additional advisories Saturday and
Saturday night.

Waves of precipitation with some potential ice, tonight and again
Saturday night into Sunday morning.
