GREAT LAKES ICE OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CLEVELAND OHIO
510 PM EST WED JAN 21 2015

ACTIVE WATCHES...WARNINGS...AND ADVISORIES ON THE GREAT LAKES CAN
BE FOUND AT...HTTP://WWW.CRH.NOAA.GOV/GREATLAKES/?C=HAZ&L=GL&P=A

5 DAY ICE DISCUSSION...
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL CROSS SOUTHERN CANADA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
WITH A MILD PACIFIC AIR MASS. GALE WATCHES AND GALE WARNINGS ARE
IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF THE NORTHERN GREAT LAKES FOR THURSDAY INTO
FRIDAY. SOUTHWEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REACH 35 KNOTS.

THIS WINDY SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO BRING ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
TO MOST OF THE GREAT LAKES INTO THE WEEKEND. LITTLE NEW ICE IS
EXPECTED TO FORM THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK BUT THERE WILL BE
ENOUGH WIND THAT ICE FIELDS MAY MOVE AND TRACKS WILL NOT HOLD. ICE
BREAKING MAY BE NECESSARY FOR NAVIGATION.

A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL DROP SOUTHEAST FROM CENTRAL CANADA AND
CROSS THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES LATER IN THE WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT
WEEK. THIS WILL BRING SEASONABLY COLD WEATHER BACK TO THE GREAT
LAKES WITH BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ON THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES BY
MONDAY. SLOW TO MODERATE ICE FORMATION WILL RESUME THE SECOND HALF
OF THE WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT WEEK.
