Platte Lake Ice Out Prediction for 2021

It's that time of year for me to pick an ice-out date for Platte Lake. We have pretty good ice cover on the lakes right now and a moderate amount of snow cover. It looks like by this time next week the snow will be mostly gone.  I don't think there is much hope of beating last year's ice-out date of April 8th.  It does look like we are going to be starting March warmer than last year which makes me optimistic it won't be a late ice-out this year. 

I predict the ice will be off Platte Lake on April 13th, 2021

2020 Prediction April 8th, Nailed it! 
2019 Prediction May 9th Ice Off Date April 20th 
2018 Prediciton April 22nd Ice Off Date May 2nd 
2017 Prediction March 29th Ice Off Date April 1st 
2015 Prediction April 20th Ice Out Date April 3rd
