2/1/2011 Lake Michigan Massive Waves

BNVN Weather Paparazzi Scott Weberpal was covering this major epic blizzard system along the Lake Michigan shoreline near Racine, WI at the Wind Point Lighthouse.

The video Scott produced is pretty simple to explain, BIG WAVES. The winds on the north side of the epic winter storm system that has shut down a good part of the United States was creating some major waves which crashed into the shoreline. With the air temp almost stable along the lake front at about 20F all day long, the water turned to ice almost as soon as it crashed onto the rocks along the shoreline.

Winds along Lake Michigan in the Milwaukee and Racine Wisconsin area are gusting over 40 MPH currently.
