SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (AP) -

Forecasters say Michigan will see high winds and rain mixed with snow as part of a strong storm system moving into the Midwest.

The National Weather Service issued gale warnings for the Great Lakes region that are in effect until Thursday in some areas.

Waves on Lake Michigan are expected to be 6 to 10 feet on Wednesday night and peak Thursday in the 12- to 15-foot range. Waves up to 13 feet are possible. Gale warnings are in effect into Friday night for parts of Lake Huron.

High winds are expected, especially across the southern portion of the Lower Peninsula. Gusts of 60 mph are possible.

Stormy weather could continue on Friday. The weather service says recreational boaters should stay in port until the winds and waves subside.
