Lake Superior -- often referred to as an inland sea -- is large enough to influence regional weather.

Meteorologists use a wide range of tools to try to predict Lake Superior weather. Anyone who has been on the lake, however, knows the weather has the ability to change in an instant. Winds, swell and waves rise rapidly, forcing boaters and tourists to change their plans. On Lake Superior, mariners need more than the most recent weather forecast; they need to be able to read the signs of change.

Carol Christenson of the National Weather Service will present an address at 7:30 p.m. Monday that explains what to look for and what to expect out on the water.

This is the third presentation in the National Lakeshore's summer guest lecture series. The programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Apostle Islands at 7:30 p.m. Mondays in the auditorium of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore's headquarters visitor center in Bayfield's Old County Courthouse on Washington Avenue. Seating for the free programs is available for 60 people and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

For more information or a complete schedule of programs, call (715) 779-3397, extension 399.
