Ice Conditions 2020-2021
« on: December 10, 2020, 10:16:27 AM »
I spotted frozen areas yesterday morning in a local swamp.

I know they will likely thaw out over the next few days, but it tells me that the water temps in the the extremely shallow areas are hanging in the low 30s.  :crying:

Chapmans looked like there was some skim ice yesterday when i drove by.   I guess a few nights in the 20's will do it ;D

No doubt! There was still some ice left in the sheltered areas of the swamp when I drove by this afternoon, but the areas in the open sun were open again.

Either way, we know that the water is cold  (giggle)

The 10 day forecast shows only 1 day with highs in the 30s, so this should fend off any further ice until at least Christmas time. Let's see what happens after that  :hmm:

Small, shallow lakes and swampy areas are 100% iced in as of yesterday. Today and tomorrow will be cloudy and in the 40s, so not sure how that will affect it. But it's safe to say that the water temps are cold  :nod:
