There She Blows
The gales of November have arrived a bit early on the North Shore this year. High winds are blowing and will continue to blow throughout the day. These are the days Lake Superior mesmerizes me with her awesome waves crashing onto the shore. The force of the waves can be heard and felt if you are anywhere near the lakeshore.
A WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CDT THIS AFTERNOON.
NORTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE EARLY THIS MORNING TO 25 TO 35 MPH…WITH FREQUENT GUSTS OF 40 TO 50 MPH. A FEW GUSTS NEAR 55MPH CAN ALSO BE EXPECTED. LOCATIONS ALONG THE NORTH
SHORE…INCLUDING COMMUNITIES ALONG HIGHWAY 61 FROM TWO HARBORS TO GRAND PORTAGE WILL BE AFFECTED BY THE STRONG WINDS. IN ADDITION TO THE STRONG WINDS…RAIN WILL CREATE POOR VISIBILITIES AT TIMES. HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES WILL BE ESPECIALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO THESE WINDS AND SHOULD USE CAUTION.
A WIND ADVISORY MEANS THAT SUSTAINED WINDS OF AT LEAST 30 MPH FOR MORE THAN 1 HOUR… OR GUSTS OF 45 MPH… ARE EXPECTED. WINDS THIS STRONG CAN MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT…ESPECIALLY FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES. USE EXTRA CAUTION.
