For a brief moment on Saturday morning there is ice-glee around the Bass Islands. From west to east, from north to south, thin ice sheets danced across Lake Erie’s Western Basin. Air temperature hovers in the mid-twenties (F), and Marblehead Station reports the noon water temperature at 32.5°F. Shanties may not pop up anytime soon, but the partially frozen inland sea lifts spirits for all of us who thrive on weather dynamics!
Gusty winds, below-freezing temperatures, snow, and frozen rain paint Put-in-Bay in full winter mode–with the exception of no ice on Lake Erie. Overnight snow and ice glazed the Bass Islands, with some reports indicating a total depth of four inches. Ottawa County remains under a Level One Snow Emergency, as of 12:26pm. At 1:18pm, NOAA issues a Hazardous Weather Outlook:
Patchy freezing drizzle and snow are possible today and tonight. Slick spots may be possible on untreated and elevated surfaces. Minor snow accumulations of less than an inch are possible on Friday.
