5 Day Ice Discussion...

Ice continues to decrease on Lake Superior with the remaining ice 
mainly limited to Whitefish Bay, the St. Mary's River, some of the 
northern bays, and northern portions of Georgian Bay. Above normal 
temperatures will continue across the Upper Great Lakes through 
Tuesday then settle back closer to normal on Wednesday as a front 
approaches from the north. Low pressure tracking out of the Plains 
will move east across the region from Wednesday into Thursday, 
pulling a stronger cold front south behind it. Temperatures will settle 
back below normal across the Upper Great Lakes for the remainder of the 
week. Ice deterioration will continue through Wednesday, then slow. 

Southerly winds of 10-20 knots on Lake Superior tonight will shift 
to north/northeast on Tuesday. Winds veer to southeast on Wednesday, 
then north at 15-25 knots on the east half of Lake Superior 
on Thursday.
