A Beach Hazards Advisory/Statement is in effect along the Illinois Lake Michigan shoreline into northwest Indiana Lake County shoreline until Monday. The Advisory actually extends farther north to Sheboygan, Wisconsin (light-blue-shaded counties on the headlined map).
With a northeast wind gusting at times in excess of 25 miles per hour, waves will build on the lake and work their way toward shore, running 3 to 7 feet along the shoreline and creating high wave action and dangerous Rip and Structural Currents. Winds will increase – gusting over 30 miles per hour out of the east-northeast later Saturday and Sunday, building 6 to 9-foot waves. Winds will shift northerly and weaken during the day Monday.
