It's a good thing boating season has not arrived yet because Sunday was an awful day on Lake Michigan.A gale warning is now in effect for Lake Michigan because of powerful winds.

A low pressure system moving in from the south was creating strong, sustained winds and six-to-eight-foot waves.

The gale warning is issued when winds over the water are expected to be between 34 to 47 knots. The warning will continue until 1 a.m. Monday.
