Arctic cold front
« on: December 01, 2016, 10:41:39 PM »
Bet that got your attention! ;) I actually heard those words from one of the eye candy weather girls last night. Predicted a big drop in the jet stream by next weekend; so fingers crossed for actual winter.

Yes!  8)  Accuweather seems to agree! Temps dropping next Fri. into the teens at night! Then the following week not getting much above freezing all week! Looks like we may be on the ice in about 10 days or so!  :o

I know what both of you mean about the boss's list....I retire from my corporate life end of 2018 and have quite a few upgrades that need to get done before then. Let's keep an eye on the lakes. Can't wait to say the lake's have a lid! Mark

Can't wait to hear it Mark! Meanwhile I'm breaking out my chain saw; all tuned up and sharpened blades. Nothing like a "day off". ;)

No but I should be able to get them. My brother gave me a belated birthday check made out to a local bait and tackle.  They are supplied by Kurtz's Fish Hatchery which is about twenty min. away. He wholesales to most of the area shops and has bait vending machines as well. Kind of cool that you can get emergency fatheads at Hopewell lake for a few bucks. Put a few nice extra crappie on the ice for me. ;D

the big issue we might have is the snow we are projected to get. I'm seeing 6-10 inches in areas of some of our northern lakes.  that'll really screw up the ice.  it'll make an inch or two by sunday and then all that snow dumps on it and it doesnt freeze right :'(  im hoping that isnt the case cuz im going nuts waiting to walk on water

Accuweather is saying only 2-4" before changing to rain. NWS is saying only "moderate" snow accumulations. But next week is looking very good! HIGH on Thurs. of 20??? NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  8)

Fingers crossed for light snow; it's a real buzz kill for early ice. Worst is when it traps water against the ice surface. 0~ Think happy thoughts!

ya, I saw about an inch on sunday then 5-8 sunday night and another inch monday morning in wayne county.   who knows.  snow on early ice sucks. this happened 2 years ago when we had ice before thanksgivivng.  the snow froze on the lake and there was water under it trapped against 2 inches of clear ice.  the lake never made much more ice after that until the middle of january.  I just hate the timing of weather sometimes! why couldnt this happen last week!??  of course this all depends if the lakes get a cap before sunday....
