Updated Ice Conditions: NWO April 26, 2014

Well, it has been one week since my last ice report. My Dad was up North again over the weekend and he took some more pictures of the ice. The ice isn't looking a whole lot different than it was last week (from the air), but the conditions are continuing to deteriorate throughout the area. Dad took pictures of some different lakes this time to give you a better overall idea. The pictures aren't quite as clear this time (different camera), but you will get the idea. If you look closely you can see the darker spots on the ice.

Although there hasn't been a whole lot of change in the ice over the last week, the good news is that we've seen warm temperatures and very strong winds yesterday and today. The rest of the week doesn't look too bad - the temperature isn't supposed to reach quite as high as we'd like (staying just under the 10 degrees Celsius mark), but hopefully the sun will be warm enough to do some melting. There is also a couple of rainy days in the forecast, which is always good for taking down the ice.

I will report back mid-week when my Dad returns from Kapikik Lake. This blustery day is going to make for a bumpy flight, but this wind is a good thing for our ice!

Until next time,
