Lake Superior Ice on Memorial Day!May 26th, 2014 at 2:09 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
The high temperature at the Marquette Airport (well inland) was 85° on Sunday…but… This is what it looked like at the beach! (pic. from the Marquette NWS facebook page and Doug Vanb). Easiest day a lifeguard ever had. Check out this picture Sunday from the beach at Grand Marais. Note, not only the expanse of ice, but also, no leaves on the trees yet. Here’s Union Bay – Silver City MI on Friday. Here’s the ice at Black River Harbor. Another pic. of the ice at Marquette. Satellite pic. from Saturday on the right shows the ice against the southern shore of the lake, where the north wind has blown it.
