Michigan Windsurfing

Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

From Millard on the SE MI Yahoo forum:

This morning’s early AM models agree on Hurricane Earl’s track and his
effect on Great Lakes wind. The best time
frame seems to be Saturday AM for a W-WNW blow with lots of upper level wind
support. Friday could give a W blow, but that has some gaps in it and may not develop
until late. Like a lot of wind events here, things will be stronger on northern
Lake Michigan, easily WNW gales or more. And
Hatteras will get hammered by full hurricane winds Thursday night if anyone
really wants it big.

It’s been at least two years since a hurricane visited here and these events are difficult to time and predict an exact wind direction. The interaction of Earl
and an incoming low pressure system also adds complexity, but we will not have
the driving rain that usually comes with a hurricane.

Bring the small stuff,
