According to MLive.com, Lake Michigan is forecast to get waves of 15 feet (or more) along the southern coast. A gale warning on the southern part of the lake, with winds from the north, should be effect into the afternoon. According to the National Weather Service, wave heights should be around 9 feet in Ludington and get higher the further south you go.

Highest wave ever on Lake Michigan? 23 feet.

And while the sight of huge waves pounding the coast will be spectacular, the combination of high water on Lake Michigan and 15-foot waves is going to do some more damage (hopefully not a lot) to beaches and property along the coast.

Here's the story.
