CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The National Weather Service has issued a small craft advisory for Lake Michigan until 4 p.m. Sunday.

Winds are expected up to 20 knots with significant wave as high six feet. Some waves could reach eight feet.

A small craft advisory means that wind speeds of 21 to 33 knots are expected to produce hazardous wave conditions to small craft. Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels, should avoid navigating in these conditions.
