URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DETROIT/PONTIAC MI
402 PM EST SAT NOV 22 2014

...STRONG GALE FORCE WINDS MAY DEVELOP OVER THE CENTRAL GREAT
LAKES MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT...

.SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO DECREASE THROUGH THE EARLY EVENING
ACROSS THE CENTRAL GREAT LAKES...ALLOWING WINDS WAVES OVER LAKE
HURON TO GRADUALLY SUBSIDE. WINDS WILL SHIFT MORE SOUTHERLY SUNDAY
AND SUNDAY NIGHT AS A LARGE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM BEGINS TO LIFT
TOWARDS THE AREA FROM THE PLAINS. WARMER AIR WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO
SURGE INTO THE AREA...PROVIDING A FAIRLY STABLE ENVIRONMENT OVER THE
WARM LAKE WATERS. THIS SHOULD HELP LIMIT GUSTS TO THE 15 TO 25 KNOT
RANGE SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT.

THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LIFT ACROSS THE WESTERN AND NORTHERN
GREAT LAKES SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY...SENDING A STRONG COLD
FRONT ACROSS THE AREA MONDAY AFTERNOON. GALE FORCE WINDS LOOK LIKELY
BEHIND THE COLD FRONT MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT AS A TIGHT PRESSURE
GRADIENT DEVELOPS AND MUCH COLDER AIR RUSHES INTO THE AREA...WITH
POTENTIAL FOR WIND GUSTS TO EXCEED 45 KNOTS. THERE IS STILL SOME
UNCERTAINTY WITH HOW MUCH THIS SYSTEM WILL DEEPEN AND THE EXACT
TRACK IT WILL TAKE ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES. FURTHER ADJUSTMENT TO THE
FORECAST IS POSSIBLE. IF THE SYSTEM DEEPENS FURTHER THAN CURRENTLY
ANTICIPATED...STORM FORCE WIND GUSTS COULD DEVELOP OVER PORTIONS OF
LAKE HURON. THOSE WITH INTERESTS IN THE GREAT LAKES MONDAY AND
MONDAY NIGHT SHOULD FOLLOW CHANGES IN THE FORECAST CLOSELY. A GALE
WATCH IS NOW IN EFFECT MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT FOR ALL MARINE AREAS.
