Snow and Ice Report for January 4, 2019
Map from :
Environment Canada Ice forecast Ice Products located at:
Pretty much holding steady with snow, getting a little more compacted and couple more dusting to add to the total. A little freezing rain in some areas may make it a little crusty out there.
With the weight of the snow and warmer temperatures the slush comes out so be mindful of the slush.
Snow machines are out in force and atvs on packed trails are definitely usable.
Inland lakes are iced in for the most part except where current opens it up. Black bay has lots of ice and Mazukama/Kama are iced in with thickening ice every night.
Black Bay from Hurkett has good fast ice in the with some pressure ridging and separation taking place. Snow machines are the vehicle of choice now. Slushy in spots.
Whitefish and Lakes west of Thunderbay are solid for the most part except those with current keeping them thin and/or open.
