Detroit — The National Weather Service Friday issued a lakeshore flooding warning for Lake St. Clair.

The warning is in effect from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.

Sustained winds of 20-25 m.p.h. over the lake are expected to develop early Saturday and continue through the evening, according to the agency's meteorologists. The winds could cause increased wave action in elevated water levels along the shorelines of Harsens Island and much of Anchor Bay.

The warning means flooding along the lakeshore will occur, potentially flooding nearby homes and roads as well as eroding the shoreline.

Meanwhile, cold weather is expected to remain in the region. 

Friday's high temperature could reach 37 degrees and the low could plummet to about 27 degrees, according to the weather service's forecast for Detroit.

The forecast calls for a slight warm up on Saturday with a high of 47 degrees and a low of 29 degrees.

Sunday with a high of 47 degrees and a low of 29 degrees could be the warmest day over the next three days.

Extended forecast

Saturday: Mostly cloudy; high 41, low 36.

Monday: Cloudy, high 34, low 22

Tuesday: Partly sunny; high 30, low 18.
