Weather Update for Sunday, July 22, 2018. Hazardous Conditions on Lake Michigan and Chance of Rain and Thunderstorms Through Weekend
Today, the low front that has brought the circular waves of weather for the past three days to the great lakes area is beginning to move off to the east southeast. High pressure will begin to enter the area pushing out all this rainy stormy nonsense and bring in more stable weather to the region for most of the upcoming work week.
Today look for continued patterns of rain to last throughout most of the day. Cloudy with a high of 77 in the Highland area, cooler near the lake at 74 and warmer inland at 79. As it usually is during a pressure transition, the winds will pickup out of the northeast at 10-15 mph gusting up to 20-25 mph. Actually would not be shocked if gusts hit the 30-35 mph given the patterns in the area.
Please note that marine and beach warnings are still in effect for most of Lake Michigan that includes all the shorelines in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. Conditions on the lake are considered hazardous with winds up to 20 kts and waves upto 8 feet.
Tonight, mostly cloudy, with a low around 65. North northeast wind 5 to 10 mph.
As the high pressure comes in the skies will begin to clear and surface winds settle.
Monday, mostly sunny, with a high near 82. North wind 5 to 10 mph.
Monday night, mostly clear, with a low around 65. North northeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the evening.
Tuesday, sunny, with a high near 85.
