Duluth – Gale Force Winds Whipping Up Lake Superior

Duluth

Duluth

Twelve to Sixteen Foot Waves Expected

DULUTH – Strong northeast winds are expected tonight and Wednesday as an autumn storm system moves through the Duluth region.

Gales are forecast over western Lake Superior with sustained winds of 30 to 35 mph along the shore with gusts to 40 mph possible.

Sustained winds and gusts will be stronger over Lake Superior and adjacent shoreline areas. Lakeshore flooding is possible with shore erosion and damage to shoreline infrastructure possible.

The strong winds will make driving difficult, especially on north-south roads and on the Bong and Blatnik Bridges between the Twin Ports.
