URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
358 AM EDT Thu Aug 22 2019

...Elevated waves continue this morning over southern Lake
Huron...

.Canadian high pressure will expand into the northern Great Lakes
over the next couple days before departing to eastern Canada over
the weekend. This system will influence the region right through the
end of the weekend. There is an ongoing push of seasonally cool air
across the lakes as this high builds in. This is currently
supporting gusty northerly winds across Southern Lake Huron. The
winds and waves will gradually decrease during the course of the day
and into tonight as the gradient slowly relaxes. Light to modest
northerly winds will however persist across the the lakes through
the day Friday. Persistent cold air advection across the lakes today
into Friday will promote enough over lake instability to support a
chance for waterspouts.
