URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE

...Gusty Westerly Winds and Increasing Wave Heights Tonight...

.Small Craft Advisories will continue until 10AM Friday as southwest
flow begins to relax. Winds will then veer to the northwest
throughout the day Friday as a cold front pushes across the central
Great Lakes. Winds will continue rotating to northeasterly Friday
night due to the presence of a high pressure moving southeast across
Ontario. Gusts in the immediate wake of the cold front Friday night
may approach gale force, but generally expect 30 knots to be the
rule. Building waves in this developing flow will likely lead to
additional Small Craft Advisory conditions by Friday evening as
onshore flow pushes this high wave action into the nearshore waters.
Winds will weaken during the weekend as broad high pressure setups
over the central Great Lakes region.
