...brief period of lakeshore flooding possible late this
morning...

due to the record high water levels on lake erie, a brief period
of lakeshore flooding is possible late this morning as both
easterly winds begin picking up on lake erie and a seiche (slosh
of the water back and forth in lake erie) is forcing the water
level to rise on the western end of the lake. water levels may
rise a few more inches across the western basin through late
morning. the rise in water level will cause some minor flooding
for a couple hours before falling.

lakeshore flood warnings will be issued when significant long
term flooding is expected. persons with interest along the lake
shore should monitor the water levels today.
