On Wednesday, a low-pressure system is forecast to move across the Great Lakes region. Strong west winds are expected to develop early Wednesday morning and are forecasted to peak overnight and into Thursday morning. Maximum sustained wind speeds of 40-50 km per hour with gusts up to 80 km per hour are expected. Offshore waves may exceed 3m in height.
Fortunately, water levels for Lake Huron have returned to near average conditions but there may still be a risk of shoreline erosion and near-shore flooding. The areas most affected within the Grey Sauble Watershed will be the western shorelines along Lake Huron.
This message will remain in effect until 12:00 pm on Friday December 2nd, unless local conditions warrant further updates. The Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (GSCA) will continue to monitor conditions and will provide an update if required.
