MILWAUKEE — The U.S. Coast Guard is warning residents to be careful out on Lake Michigan during potentially hazardous weather conditions now until Tuesday.

Coast Guard issued the warning on Sunday after the National Weather Service issued several beach hazard statements and small craft advisories through Memorial Day.

The hazards include 25 knot winds, 2 to 8 foot waves, rip currents, dense fog and the chance for showers and thunderstorms, the Coast Guard said.

"Due to these conditions, the Coast Guard is advising the public to be cautious around Lake Michigan and familiarize themselves with current weather conditions for Memorial Day," according to their statement.
