Strong Winds and High Waves Remain Likely This Morning

Forecast calls for winds up to 65 mph and waves up to 20 feet.

Mother Nature is not done with the North Shore yet.

Yesterday's high winds and waves are expected to continue through the morning, tapering off some in the afternoon.

According to the National Weather Service's high wind warning, which is in effect until 10 a.m.: "North to northest winds of 40 to 45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph are likely. The strongest winds will be over locations adjacent to Lake Michigan."

The marine forecast predicts waves of 20 to 25 feet, which will go down to 15 to 20 feet this afternoon.

Nice work, Betsy and Sal! You're braver (and wetter) than me. I like that you're videographer finally gave up and got inside the car.

That's videographer (and Sally's husband) Tim Higginson. He pointed out that we didn't pay him enough to stay outside in the squall!

I've never seen two people more happy to be relentlessly sprayed in the face by water teeming with fecal matter and sewage! What people such as this don’t realize is that a storm churns up matter that would otherwise be left settled at the bottom....furthermore when a significant rain occurs sewage treatment facilities allow UNTREATED waste into the waters of Lake Michigan...Congrats Betsy and Sal....I would recommend a shower...and probably some vaccinations….people are so dumb in this town

"Hey, buddy!" "Yeah...buddy?" "Want to parade around in crashing waves, heavy rain and 60-mph winds?" "You know what, buddy?" "What?" "Count me in! Maybe next week we can do the Charleston on the roof of an abandoned barn?" "BFFs forevs!"
