MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Officials close to Lake Michigan are taking steps to avoid damage to boats and other things, with waves expected to reach up to 31-feet Tuesday and Wednesday.

The largest waves are predicted north of Sheboygan. In Milwaukee County, park employees put up snow-fences to keep sand from Bradford Beach from blowing onto a main road nearby.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele says the storm won’t nearly have the same impact as on the East Coast – but people can expect to feel the effects.

Winds of up to 50 miles an hour are expected in Door County Tuesday, and up to 45 elsewhere in eastern Wisconsin. Forecasters say the winds were to start picking up this afternoon.
