Open Lake Forecast for Lake Superior
National Weather Service Marquette MI
946 AM EDT Sat Jun 24 2017

For waters beyond five nautical miles of shore on Lake Superior

Waves are the significant wave height - the average of the
highest 1/3 of the wave spectrum. Occasional wave height is the
average of the highest 1/10 of the wave spectrum.

SYNOPSIS
As a 29.2 inch low drifts over the Canadian Maritimes
through Sunday, 29.9 inch low pressure troughing will remain
across the Upper Great Lakes. High pressure ridging of 30.2 inches
will build into the Northern Plains, and then shift over the
Upper Great Lakes into Tuesday. Tuesday into Wednesday, high
pressure of 30.2 inches will push southeast into the Mid Atlantic
states as low pressure of 29.5 inches lifts out of the Northern
Plains and heads towards the Upper Great Lakes. This low will
weaken slightly to 29.6 inches and reach Quebec by Thursday.
