Today is supposed to be the last of the under 40 degree days that we have been experiencing for the last couple of weeks. There is an outside shot Platte will be ice free on Easter. I probably will not get to check on Easter, however, because I am going to the cities that day. Looking at the forecast, I think the ice will probably be off by the 15th.
Minnesota Climatology updated today.
3-31 Lake of the Isles (Hennepin County)
4-3 Gervias (Ramsey County)
4-3 Fountain (Freeborn County) I don't think this date is accurate, this lake probably went ice free in March.
4-5 Phalen (Ramsey County)
I suspect Minnetonka, Medicine, Waconia, White Bear, South Center, Calhoun, and Forrest will be ice free by Saturday as temps in the cities are supposed to be mid 40's or higher and sun the rest of the week.
