Great Lakes see "superior" ice cover, but it will not last


The ice cover is superior.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Friday, Lake Superior was 94% covered with ice. It was the first time that the largest of the Great Lakes covered more than 90% of its surface in four years.

At the same time last year, Superior was half covered and only 7% of the lake was covered at that time in 2017.

Similar ice cover is reported on the other four Great Lakes. Lake Erie has 94% coverage, Huron 85%, Michigan about 40% and Ontario 23%.

Climatologists say weather conditions have been steadily maintaining the region's air since the end of January. Warmer temperatures in the next few days will begin to melt things up.
