In the wake of a thunderstorm cluster headed southeast out of our area, an area of strong southeast winds has developed across west-central Minnesota.  The large area of rain cooled air has produced a high pressure/low pressure couplet resulting in winds gusting to near 50 mph (possible stronger) across parts of Becker and Otter Tail counties along with surrounding areas.  These winds will cause large waves which will be a concern on already high lakes, es[ecially on the north and northwest shores of the larger lakes.  The winds are not directly associatesd with thunderstorms and should stay just below severe thunderstorm criteria.  The winds will gradually subside over the next hour or two.   Meteorologist John Wheeler
