What to expect:
A very strong storm system will move into the central Great Lakes this weekend. The main concern will be
strong damaging winds that develop in the wake of a cold front on Sunday and continue into Sunday
night. Wind gusts of 60 mph are possible with locally higher along the lakeshore. Power disruptions along
with minor structural damage to structures is possible.
Minor flooding will be possible near and south of US 30. Most locations will see 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of rain.
Although locally higher will be possible, especially if thunderstorms develop. Very strong winds just above the surface
Saturday night may be brought to the surface if any thunderstorms or heavy showers develop. So the wind damage
threat could start Saturday night.
Gale to Storm force winds on Lake Erie will cause significant ice floes. Some of this ice may surge onshore and could pose a risk
to structures along the immediate shoreline. Higher water levels on Lake Erie across NW PA may help this ice surge
a bit further inland than what is typical.
