Last Ice About to Melt on Lake SuperiorJune 6th, 2014 at 9:10 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
GLERL reports that the ice extent on Lake Superior is for the first time since last fall down to 0.0%. That means the ice extent is less than 1/10 of 1%. However, you can still see a little blue north of Ironwood, so they still report a few ice cubes left floating around there. There is still a small patch of snow on the Mt. Ripley webcam. Here’s season snowfall for the western and central U.P. (click the images to enlarge). Mt. Bohemia had the highest snow total that I could find at 351″ (or 29 1/4 FEET). Here’s some pics. of the pair of peregrine falcons that now call downtown G.R. home.
Also, Moderate Risk of Severe Storms Tonight from Kansas to Texas. 19 tornadoes reported so far Friday and over 220 severe reports from the High Plains to Coastal Georgia. Lots of soaking rains from NW Texas to Nebraska.
