The storm system responsible for locally drenching rain and even waterspouts into the weekend will kick up the wind, wave and rip current action in the region.

Waters will be especially rough during Thursday evening through Friday on the south end of Lake Michigan. Winterlike wave action is forecast from Milwaukee through Chicago, Gary, Ind., and Benton Harbor, Mich.

Stiff northerly winds are likely to produce waves that could be breaking over the shoreline in some areas. Folks who have a daily walk, bike or run along the lake may need to alter their plans.
