Open Lake Forecast for Lake Erie
National Weather Service Cleveland OH
302 AM EST Mon Dec 5 2022

For waters beyond five nautical miles of shore on Lake Erie

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

High pressure of 30.30 inches continues to exit eastward as a cold
front approaches from the north-central United States. This front
should stall over Lake Erie Tuesday through Tuesday night as a
weak low of 29.90 inches along the front moves from the south-
central United States toward the Mid Ohio Valley. The front
should then advance southeastward from Lake Erie on Wednesday as
the frontal low of 29.90 inches moves farther northeastward.
Behind the front, a high pressure ridge averaging 30.20 inches
should build over Lake Erie later Wednesday through Thursday as
the parent high moves from the northern Great Plains toward James
Bay. On Friday, another low of 29.90 inches should move from the
Lower Ohio Valley toward the Upper Ohio Valley and extend a weak
trough averaging 30.10 inches over Lake Erie.
