Weather Tidbits: Ice Thickness
Ice thickness is the main headline in this Weather Tidbits. The ice thickness guide represents clear ice; while snow or white ice is considered weaker and needs to be doubled in order to be considered safe. Ice thickness less than 2″ is unsafe; while 4″ is considered safe for ice fishing and ice skating. 5″-6″ is safe enough to ride a snowmobile; while 8″ is acceptable for cars and small trucks. 12″-15″ is considered safe for medium trucks.
