National Weather Service Paints Turbulent Weather Picture

National Weather ServiceNational Weather Service, Cleveland, released the following update at 932 AM EDT Wed Sep 26 2018

MARINE:  A cold front will push east across the lake this morning shifting winds around to a northwest direction for this afternoon at around 15 knots sustained. Will expand beach hazards and small craft advisory further west to the islands. Winds will increase out of the northwest behind the front.

However, a fairly rapid decrease in the winds will take place tonight as high pressure builds east toward the local area. Light and variable winds are expected Thursday morning but will begin to increase out of the southwest by Thursday night on the back side of the high pressure.

A cold front will move east across the lake Friday and this will shift winds around to the northwest again by Friday evening and Friday night. There is the possibility that a small craft advisory will be needed again Friday. Winds become light and variable Saturday into Sunday.
