Modis Image – Lake MichiganMarch 27th, 2013 at 7:59 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
This is the MODIS satellite image centered over Lake Michigan from Weds. PM (3/27). Click on the image or click here to see full screen. Note the “lion’s head” (ice) west of the Mackinac Bridge that looks like it’s about about to devour Hog Is. Torch Lake never froze this winter (deep lake). There is still a lot of ice in Green Bay and up by the Mac. Bridge. It looks like there is snow in the Allegan St. Game Area, but none north over the open fields of Ottawa Co. The east end of Lake Macatawa is open water. My “tornado scar” west of Green Bay is still there! Check out the MODIS picture of Lake Superior, Lake Huron and Lake Ontario. One more picture, check out Mt. Edna in Italy.
