...STRONG THUNDERSTORMS APPROACHING THE WATERS OF LAKE MICHIGAN
SOUTH OF STURGEON BAY...

The areas affected include...

Nearshore and open waters of Lake Michigan from Sturgeon Bay to
Sheboygan...

At 533 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated strong thunderstorms, capable
of producing winds to around 30 knots. These thunderstorms were
located along a line extending from near Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal
Light to near Cleveland, moving east at 30 knots.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Mariners can expect gusty winds to around 30 knots, locally higher
waves, and lightning strikes. Boaters should seek safe harbor
immediately until these storms pass.

These strong thunderstorms will likely produce winds to around 30
knots, and could pose a serious hazard for boaters. A special marine
warning may eventually be required when these storms reach the
nearshore waters. Boaters should consider heading for shore before
these storms arrive.
