...SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL GUST TO NEAR GALES TODAY...

.SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL STRENGTHEN TODAY THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL GREAT
LAKES.  A FIRM SOUTHWEST GRADIENT REACHING 25 TO 30 KNOTS WILL EXIST
ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL LAKE HURON THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY

GALES.  HOWEVER...THE COMBINATION OF A LIMITED DURATION...MARGINAL
MAGNITUDE AND THE FACT THAT A MAJORITY OF THE LAKE REMAINS ICE
COVERED WILL PRECLUDE THE ISSUANCE OF A GALE WARNING FOR TODAY.

WARMER AIR PROVIDING AN INCREASING STABLE ENVIRONMENT HEADING INTO
THE WEEKEND.  MODEST SOUTHWEST FLOW IN PLACE SATURDAY IN ADVANCE OF
A COLD FRONT.  WEAK SURFACE RIDGING THEN YIELDS A WEAKER WESTERLY
