5 Day Ice Discussion...
Large area of high pressure over the Plains States will track east across
the Lakes this weekend, then move into Nova Scotia Sunday. This will allow
an intense low to track NE across the Central Lakes on Sunday. The low
will track across James Bay Sunday night while high pressure tracks east
across the Upper Ohio Valley. The high will track east and move off the
Mid Atlantic Coast Tuesday night. Low pressure will track into the lower
lakes late Wednesday.

Southwest winds will increase to near gale force across the Lakes
Saturday night into Sunday as the intense low tracks across the lakes.
The strong winds will likely cause the ice to shift and may cause tracks
to close. Winds gradually diminish on Monday as the low tracks into Canada
and high pressure moves across the Upper Ohio Valley.

Ice deterioration is expected to continue through the entire forecast
period as temperatures will remain well above normal.
