Another OMG record crusher, Great Lakes Ice

More than 70% covered a week after Spring started


Cold weather records have been smashed all winter long, this graph illustrates what may never happen again in our lifetimes.  Great Lake ice coverage is still more than 70%!  Never in the history of satellite measurements, where the basis of this graph is made, has there been this much ice with just a few days of March to go.

That ice coverage is allowing brutal cold to slide right across the Canadian border into the Mid-west and Eastern United States.  This morning we are seeing near record cold all the way down to Tampa Bay and of course here in Jacksonville.

And there will likely be a prolonged impact through the early summer!

More on this soon!
