...POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT ICE MOVEMENT ON LAKE ERIE THROUGH
THURSDAY...

THE COMBINATION OF TEMPERATURES WARMING INTO THE 40S...PERHAPS 
INTO THE 50S ALONG WITH EXPECTED RAINFALL WILL CAUSE THE
STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE ICE ON LAKE ERIE TO WEAKEN.

IN ADDITION...SOUTH WINDS TO 25 KNOTS WILL SWITCH TO THE
SOUTHWEST AND INCREASE TO 35 KNOT GALES LATE TONIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY. THIS COULD RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT ICE MOVEMENT AND
CONTINUED DESTABILIZATION OF THE ICE ON THE LAKE.

DURING THIS PERIOD...ICE FISHERMEN SHOULD BE ALERT TO RAPIDLY 
CHANGING CONDITIONS ON LAKE ERIE AND CONTINUE TO MONITOR FUTURE
FORECASTS.
