This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Nearshore
waters of western Lake Superior.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Strong southwest winds over western Lake Superior and resulting
waves will continue to produce hazardous conditions for small
craft, especially along the Minnesota North Shore. Even through
the winds weaken this evening, the break in the winds will be
brief. Expect a sudden change in the winds. A surge of strong
east to northeast winds will spread down western Lake Superior
late this evening through the wee hours of Sunday morning. All of
western Lake Superior will have strong east to northeast winds by
dawn, with potential gale force wind gusts near the North Shore. A
Small Craft Advisory is in effect through this evening, but
another one will be needed for tonight through Sunday to cover
the next period of strong winds. Please see the latest marine
message for more information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Dangerous conditions for small craft are expected Sunday and
Sunday night. Strong east to northeast winds are expected across
western Lake Superior Sunday and Sunday night. There could even be
gale force wind gusts to 35 knots near the Minnesota North Shore.
The winds and waves will cause dangerous conditions for small
craft, and a Small Craft Advisory will be needed.

Thursday into Friday increasing southwest to west winds may lead
to hazardous conditions for small craft across parts of western
Lake Superior.
