#WeekendWashout update: Gale warning issued for areas along Lake Erie

A gale warning is in effect from noon today to midnight tonight, the National Weather Service said this morning, with affected areas stretching from Ripley to Dunkirk and from Dunkirk to Buffalo.

Winds between 34 and 47 knots and waves as high as 3 to 6 feet were predicted. The service strongly suggested that mariners seek safe harbor before the gale conditions begin.

The gale warning only adds to the “fun” predicted for this weekend, when the forecast already called for up to three inches of rain between overnight Friday and Sunday afternoon.
