It's going to be fantastic outside this weekend, but anyone heading to the lake should be extra careful.

The National Weather Service has issued a Lakeshore Flood Warning for Erie, Ottawa, Lucas and Sundusky counties until Sunday at 4 a.m.

The NWS states that flooding along the shoreline is expected, with beach and shorline erosion possible. Flooding may submerge docks and shoreline structures as water rises in marinas and waterways.

A Beach Hazards Statement has also been issued for Lake, Lorain and Cuyahoga counties.

According to the NWS, A Beach Hazards Statement "is when swimming risks exist from a combination of wind and large waves including rip currents and longshore currents. These swimming risks can create life-threatening conditions even for good swimmers. Follow the instruction of local authorities or stay out of the water."

The Beach Hazards Statement is in effect until late Saturday night.
