Muddy Water at Lake MichiganApril 25th, 2013 at 5:36 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
These are the MODIS Lake Michigan satellite pictures from this afternoon (Thu. the 25th) and yesterday (4/24). Click on the picture or at the links to enlarge. Winds today were northwest, so the water coming out of the Grand River is being pushed to the south. You can see the muddy brown water from the river contrasting to the darker Lake Michigan water. The image on the right from yesterday shows there is STILL some ice in Green Bay. Check out the picture of Lake Superior. There’s lots of snow to melt yet around Lake Superior. Here’s the Lake Ontario picture. ALSO – I just got the latest Weekly Great Lakes Water Level Report. The water level is up 3″ in the past week. I’ll do a separate thread on lake levels after the 6 PM news…probably have it up on the blog here by 7:30 PM.
