Great Lakes Ice Outlook
National Weather Service Cleveland Ohio
357 PM EST Mon Jan 15 2018

Active watches...warnings...and advisories on the Great Lakes can

5 Day Ice Discussion...
Weak low pressure over the lower Great Lakes will lift northeast and fill
tonight and Tuesday as high pressure drops southeast across the northern
and central Plains. This will continue to support modified arctic airmass
across the Great Lakes through Wednesday. Ice growth will be moderate and
winds will be generally less than 25 knots. Wednesday through Friday the
high will move to the southeastern states as low pressure moves through
central Canada forcing a warm front across the lakes Wednesday and another
on Friday/Saturday. Temperatures will moderate Thursday into the weekend
resulting in only slow ice growth Thursday into Saturday across the
northern lakes and slow growth to slow decay across the southern lakes.
