...gale force winds possible late monday into tuesday night...

.moderate to fresh southerly flow will persist until a cold front 
traverses the waters monday into monday night. winds will quickly 
become strong and westerly in the wake of the front gusting to at 
least near-gales as low pressure lifts from the ohio valley into 
ontario. the exact track and strength of the low are uncertain at 
this time and a wide range of outcomes remains possible because the 
low will track directly over or very near the lakes...the former 
resulting in a more subdued wind scenario. despite uncertainty...the 
potential for significant impacts monday evening through tuesday 
evening warrants the issuance of a gale watch. note that the wind 
and wave forecast is likely to undergo noteworthy changes over the 
next few forecast cycles.
