5 DAY ICE DISCUSSION... THE FEW ICE FIELDS SCATTERED AROUND MOSTLY
THE BAYS AND SHORELINE AREAS OF THE NORTH HALF OF THE LAKES WILL
CONTINUE TO SEE SLOW TO MODERATE DETERIORATION INTO FRIDAY AS ABOVE
TO VERY MUCH ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES DOMINATE. COLDER AIR PUSHING
IN BY FRIDAY NIGHT WILL THEN LEAD TO LITTLE CHANGE TO SLOW GROWTH
FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT AS TEMPERATURES RETURN TO NORMAL.

WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE LITTLE EFFECT ON THE FEW ICE FIELDS
THROUGH THURSDAY. A STRONG LOW MOVING NORTHEAST THROUGH THE LAKES
FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY COULD CAUSE SOME SLIGHT SHIFTING OF THE
SMALL ICE FIELDS AS WINDS INCREASE TO 30 TO 40 KNOTS FOR A GOOD PART
OF THE LAKES DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.
