According to the National Weather Service, north winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph expected.

In addition, the National Weather Service said strong north winds over the open waters will make the lake water rough and hazardous, and may result in high waves which may tip or swamp smaller craft; and drivers of high profile vehicles will encounter strong crosswinds along west to east oriented highways.

According to the National Weather Service, precautionary/preparedness actions include for your personal safety, avoid the open waters on lakes in the advisory area; stay close to shore or around protected areas; and use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high profile vehicle; and secure outdoor objects.
