Lake St Clair Forecast
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
957 PM EST Thu Jan 17 2019

Waves are the significant wave height - the average of the highest
1/3 of the wave spectrum. Occasional wave height is the average of
the highest 1/10 of the wave spectrum.

.SYNOPSIS...A weak cold front moves through the central Great
Lakes tonight followed by high pressure, 30.60 inches, moving
across Ontario. The next low pressure system, 29.50 inches,
tracks through the southern Ohio Valley leaving the bulk of the
Great Lakes in between with northeast flow. Another much stronger
arctic cold front will then surge into the area late this weekend,
bringing gusty north wind, building waves and freezing spray.
