All,

I stopped off at Long Island after work to check out ice conditions. I stopped off at 1st & 2nd pull-off and just before the bridge. Here’s what I found:

- Ambient was 52F
- Lots of standing water at the ice
- 1-4’ from the bank my spud bar went straight through
- 4-5’ from the bank it took 2 hits to go through
- Lots of mist on the lake

I estimate that safe ice could be anywhere from 8’ - 12’ from the bank. Overnight we’ll have warm temps until 2am and rain from 1am onwards  This will cause more melt. From 9am  tomorrw onwards we’ll see freezing rain which will turn to snow at 1pm. They are forecasting 4-6” of snow at the moment which will cool any standing water and water at the edges of the lake. The cooldown will then continue into Saturday and beyond.

At this point I think getting on the ice at Long Island will be difficult on Saturday. Sunday will be the earliest I think. I’m going to check conditions again on Friday evening and on Saturday evening.....I’ll let you know what I find...

Everything will be starting to cool down again.
