Storms on Saturday: Lake Erie marine forecast June 7-10

After a cool week, this June weekend is looking warmer. But storms Friday evening and much of Saturday could prevent boaters from getting on the water. Sunday, thankfully, is looking beautiful.

 
If trying to get out Friday, go early. By late afternoon, storm chances start jumping up and stick around all night. Winds and waves won’t be too bad, however.
 
The stormiest day this weekend is Saturday, though waves won’t be high enough for surfers to have any real fun.
 
Sunday is the day to head to Lake Erie. While it will be a little cooler, it will be a nice day to spend time on the water, no matter the activity. Just remember the water is chilly, in the low 60s.
