Lake Superior Still Has Ice!May 19th, 2014 at 8:58 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
The evening update shows a 6.7% ice cover left on Lake Superior. Check out the latest MODIS satellite picture of the Lake Superior area. Clouds get in the way a little, but you can still see some ice down there. Will it be gone by Memorial Day? Will it all by gone by June 1? You can still see some snow on the Mt. Ripley webcam (check the link in daytime). Check out the Duluth Harbor webcams. It’s BY FAR the record latest ice extent on Lake Superior and the Great Lakes. Houghton MI hit 70° for the first time on Sunday (5/18). S. Ste. Marie and Copper Harbor have not reached 70° yet and Manistique’s warmest day so far this year was a high of 63°.
