Very strong winds, big-time waves to cause 'worst impacts seen in many years'
The lake simply looks like an ocean during a tropical storm.And it's all because of a strong area of low pressure leading to strong wind gusts of 30-50 mph along Lake Michigan.
Fortunately, the event will not last long. By Thursday afternoon, waves will be under 5 feet at nearly all beaches up and down Michigan's western shore.Despite the short duration of the intense winds and waves, the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids says, "This storm will be of short duration but cause some of the worst impacts seen in many years."
As always, if you snap any photos or take any videos, be sure to send them on in if you can do so safely!
