Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 4:03 AM CDT Sep. 20, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Heavy rain possible tonight becoming blustery with high waves
off of Lake Superior tomorrow...

Low pressure will lift across western Upper Michigan and Lake
Superior tonight into Friday morning. This system will bring with
it the potential for moderate to heavy rain tonight into Friday
morning. Rainfall totals are expected to range from 1 to 2 inches,
with locally higher amounts possible. As the system deepens and
continues to lift into Canada, a cold front will push east across
western Upper Michigan early Friday morning. This will bring
falling temperatures, lingering chance for lake effect rain
showers, and breezy conditions throughout the day. Behind the
front, winds will be out of the northwest, pushing onshore from
Lake Superior. With northwest gales off of Lake Superior expected
along the western shoreline of the Keweenaw peninsula, large waves
of 10 to 12 feet could cause minor beach erosion.
