2021 Winter Outlook, by Farmers’ Almanac, will deliver mixed emotions to residents of the Bass Islands.  Those  hungry for ice-fishing will keep fingers crossed and tune-up the ice shanty; snowbirds will start making plans to head south.  Either way, the annual season of great weather anticipation is about to begin!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also presents long-range forecasts.  This year, with the presence of La Niña, conditions will be favorable for increased wintry conditions near Lake Erie.
