Ice Cover Forecasting. GLERL conducts research on ice cover forecasting on two different time scales: short-term ( days) and seasonal. GLERL's short-term ice forecasting is part of the Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System, an experimental model used by the National Weather Service to predict wind, waves, currents, and more. Jul 09,  · A downward trend since the s in the annual maximum extent of Great Lakes ice cover, which reaches a maximum every year during late winter and early spring, spells trouble for the Great Lakes ecosystem and the people who rely on it.. The image on top shows the Great Lakes at the time of maximum ice cover averaged from based on winter season data from NOAA’s Great Lakes /5(5). Jan 16,  · Arctic Blast Fuels Rapid Ice Growth in the Great Lakes. By Chris Dolce January 16 AM EST January's shivering start has led to a rapid expansion of ice cover on the Great Lakes Author: Chris Dolce. Analysis of the growth, dissipation, thickness, and stratigraphy of ice cover in the nearshore zone of the Great Lakes, on a lake-by-lake basis, shows certain features governed by regional weather patterns and by the energy budget factors associated with each by: 9.

The blue arrows point to growth rates that are slower than typical. Sunny weather, calm winds, cloudy skies or snow are possible contributors to this. The Swedish Ice Growth Prediction Method: For a more nuanced look at growth of thin ice (less than a couple of inches) have a look at Marten Ajne's book Ice Physics for Recreational Ice-Users. These links to the Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System -- Nowcast/Forecast pages include: current observed ice cover, wind, and air temperature; model-derived ice thickness, ice velocity, vessel icing, surface currents, and water temperature. Note that some of these products are still under development.
