...Ice Advisory for Sunday and Sunday night...

Significant ice cover remains on Lake Erie, Lake St Clair and the
nearshore waters of Lake Huron including Saginaw Bay. Numerous ice
floes have developed in recent days.

A rapidly deepening low pressure system is expected to move
northeast into the Great Lakes region Sunday. The storm system
will cause gale and storm force winds throughout the region. The
strong winds may cause the ice floes to shift closing any tracks or
open areas on the lakes. The hazardous conditions will occur Sunday
and Sunday night.

Vessels are advised that ridging and rafting of the ice floes is
likely along with vessel entrapment between the ice floes.

...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

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.
