Lake Erie 95% Ice Covered

With the almost constant cloud cover of the past few weeks we have not had many opportunities to get a nice look at the lake ice, but recently a NOAA satellite was able to grab a nice image of both lakes Erie and Ontario!   The shallower Lake Erie is now 95% covered in ice!   A month of below normal temperatures helped to ice things over quickly the last couple weeks of January.  

There are still some small areas of open water around the north side of the lake and near the large crack inbetween Cleveland & Toledo.  The ice surface does have some large fractures and those are very evident in the image.
