...Gusty winds near Lake Superior tonight...

A low pressure system tracking over eastern Lake Superior will
exit the region tonight, while strengthening slightly. Strong and
gusty north-northwest winds are expected on the backside of this
system late this afternoon into tonight across northwestern Upper
Michigan and this evening through the overnight hours across
central and eastern Upper Michigan near Lake Superior. Wind gusts
of 35 to 45 mph are possible, especially at exposed locations
along Lake Superior. Further inland from Lake Superior, wind
gusts could approach 30 to 35 mph at times.

Winds this strong could break small tree limbs and cause difficult
travel conditions along west to east oriented highways.
