MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) - High wind led to spectacular waves on Lake Michigan Sunday afternoon.
The waves splashed over the breakwall into the parking lot down by McKinley Park.
The waves got as high as 12 to 14 feet.
They were helped by wind gusts of 40 to 45 miles per hour coming right off the lake.
Mix that with rain, and it's not a good day to be down near the lakeshore.
But dozens of people came out to take pictures, including one brave soul visiting from out of town.
“I came down here and they were absolutely massive so I took a couple of pictures, I got a little splashed myself, getting the whole Milwaukee experience right?” laughed Alex Fandsen who was visiting from Illinois.
