5 Day Ice Discussion...

Latest data from the U.S. National Ice Center, available from Jan 23rd,
show ice is confined to the shore and shallower bays of Lakes Superior,
Michigan, and Huron, including all of Green Bay, Saginaw Bay, and the
Straits of Mackinac. All of Lake St. Clair is ice-covered, while ice is
present along the entire shore of Lake Erie. Finally, much of the western
basin of Lake Erie remains ice-covered. The open waters of the Upper Great
Lakes and the central/eastern basins of Lake Erie remain ice-free.
Primarily moderate to rapid ice development is expected over the next five
days as overlying air temperatures remain near or below-normal. New ice
development should be confined to waters closer to shore in the Upper
Great Lakes, while most or all of Lake Erie should become ice-covered by
the end of this week.
