GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — It was a windy day yesterday and that will continue today. The difference is today’s will be bringing much cooler air. Wind gusts earlier today have already peaked to 47 mph at Muskegon and will continue strong through this evening.
This has already churned up Lake Michigan with projected wave heights to build between 10-15 feet.
The high wind and battering waves has raised concerns of lakeshore flooding and beach erosion once again. Unlike the last storm system where the winds were from the northwest this time the wind will be from the southwest.
That will place the highest rates of erosion from Grand Haven to the north.
High waves will linger into Wednesday morning before gradually dying down.
It will still remain breezy Wednesday but the strongest winds will be behind us at that point.
