These are recent MODIS satellite pics. for Lake Superior on the left and Lake Michigan (which is from today) in the middle. The image on the right is from the National Weather Service, showing the rapid ice formation on Lake Superior. You can click the pictures on the left and right to enlarge. Almost overnight the ice formed from the shore out to Isle Royale. Temperatures have been crazy-cold…-43 at Intl. Falls MN this morning and Dec. was the 5th coldest ever at Marquette. At 6 pm – it’s -11 already at Pellston and -2 out on Beaver Island. Big Green Lake in Wisconsin (a very deep lake – at 237 feet, it’s deeper than Lake Erie!) froze over New Year’s Eve.
