NexSat, NRL/NPOESS Next-Generation Weather Satellite Demonstration Project

Ice coverage charts are provided by the National Ice Center.

The page tracks the seasonal development of ice cover on the eastern Great Lakes.  Meteorologists monitor ice conditions for several reason, most importantly to determine the potential contribution from the open waters of the Great Lakes for lake effect snow storms.

Hope you enjoy the pages!
