A strong low pressure system will bring showers and thunderstorms
Monday into Tuesday. These showers and storms will have the
potential to produce and extended period of moderate to
occasionally heavy rainfall. There may be the potential for
flooding in areas that receive the heaviest rainfall. Strong north
to northwest winds developing on Tuesday and Tuesday night should
drive waves high enough as Lake Michigan beaches to lead to
dangerous rip currents and hazardous swim conditions. The high
waves and strong winds could also cause lakeshore flooding for
locations immediately adjacent to the lake.


  Spotter activation will not be necessary through tonight.
