The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for an area along Lake Huron in the Thumb.

The advisory, which is in effect until 10 p.m. Thursday, warns high winds could result in waves of 4-to-6-feet between the afternoon and evening. They could occasionally reach as tall as 8 feet, the agency warned.

A cold front moving across the lake is causing the high winds, it said. Winds could reach speeds of 23 to 29 mph.

The winds, combined with a Lake Huron water level that's about 3 feet higher than normal, could mean flooding along the lake shore, according to the weather service's White Lake Township office. The lake's average water level is about 577.5 feet, it said.

Meanwhile, Thursday's weather in Metro Detroit is expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 76 degrees and a low of about 52 degrees.
