Storm Warning

National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
346 PM EST Sat Feb 23 2019

...Storm Force Wind Gusts Possible Sunday through Monday...

.An intense low pressure system on pace to track across the northern
great lakes tonight and Sunday. A period of moderate southeast winds
will develop in advance of this system tonight. This trajectory will
bring gusts near 30 knots across portions of northern lake Huron
during this time. A pronounced increase in winds from the west-
southwest then expected on Sunday in the wake of this low. A long
duration high wind event lasting into Sunday night, with sustained
west-southwest winds of 30 to 35 knots gusting 40 to 50 knots. Peak
gusts reaching in excess of 50 knots at times, warranting the
issuance of a storm warning for all of lake Huron and lake St.
Clair. Gale force gusts likely persist into Monday over portions of
northern and central lake Huron, before gradually diminishing late
Monday and Monday night as the gradient eases. A more modest
northwest wind for the middle of next week as high pressure drifts
into the region.
