The warning from the National Weather Service is in effect until 2 a.m. Saturday. The lake is 22 inches above normal, according to the Army Corps of Engineers.
The Weather Service said flooding is expected in flood-prone areas along the shoreline, and the waves will erode some of the shoreline and beaches.
