While the past winter was a down right cold one on the peninsula, we weren't the only ones stuck in the freeze. The freezing temperatures may be a distant memory to most of us as we are now into hot and humid summer-like days. In some not so distant places, up until the last few weeks, there were still reminders of the freezing temperatures.
While the Great Lakes are now considered ice free, chunks of ice lingered as late as Memorial Day Weekend; what many people think of as the unofficial start to summer. The Great Lakes were about 92% covered with ice at one point over the past winter. This is the second highest ice coverage on record.
The late season ice coverage will hinder the increase in water temperatures. Currently, Lake Erie has a temperature in the low 60s, but there are still water temperatures in the 40s. The cooler lake water temperatures not only leave a reminder of winter, but could also lead to less severe weather and an increase in foggy conditions along the lakes in the coming months.
