...HEAVY FREEZING SPRAY WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 AM CST
MONDAY...

* WINDS: North winds 10 to 20 knots.

* WAVES: 4 to 8 feet, highest over the southern part of the lake.

* FREEZING SPRAY: The combination of very cold temperatures,
  gusty winds, and high waves will make heavy freezing spray
  likely.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heavy Freezing Spray Warning means heavy freezing spray is
expected to rapidly accumulate on vessels. These conditions can
be extremely hazardous to navigation. It is recommended that
mariners not trained to operate in these conditions or vessels
not properly equipped to do so...remain in port or avoid the
waring area.
