Last Week: Close. Sunday was good in the 20+ knot range for the northern half of the lake, but not so much for the southern half. Quite a bit lighter.
Tally So Far: Nailed It – 4, Close – 3, Way Off – 1
Water Temp: Upper 60’s for the southern half of Lake Michigan and low 60’s to the north. Not bad!
Today: A light NW breeze for all of the lakeshore. Not quite enough to go out.
Saturday: The should be 15 to 20 knots out of the West for the Muskegon to Holland areas late morning and into the early afternoon. Weather is going to be a little cooler too, so the beaches shouldn’t be too crowded.
Sunday: Looks like a repeat of Saturday except might be a couple extra knots!
I happened to be up north last Sunday and got some of the good wind. It was a fun mostly flat water session at the north beach in Manistee. The wind was side shore in the low 20 knots with gusts a little higher. The only odd thing was I couldn’t boost as high as I normally would with that much wind. Like there wasn’t as much power higher up maybe. Regardless, here are some pics from the day. Oh and I got a new board!!!
