The deep low pressure system responsible for the high winds across the area will shift northeast out of the area overnight tonight. As a result...the winds that have impacted much of the Great Lakes Region will begin to diminish. The wind advisories over much of Upper Michigan have ended at this time. On Lake Superior...most gale force winds will end by midnight and waves will slowly begin to subside in response. Below are pictures of waves near Picnic Rocks, a map showing the position of the low as of 8 am this morning and a link to reports of high winds and power outages across Upper Michigan from this event.
