Weather Advisories - Holiday Weekend
Weather Advisories: POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS ICE ON LAKES AND PONDS INTO THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.
WeatherNet 6 spotter reports indicate that yesterday's strong winds have caused some ice to break up on Saratoga Lake with two open areas of water. This has likely occurred on other area lakes as well. As the wind drops open areas of water will skim over with thin ice, but will not freeze deeply due to moderating conditions developing on Thursday and Friday. Snow by Friday will also hide areas of thin ice. USE EXTREME CAUTION THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND IF YOU HAVE RECREATIONAL PLANS ON THE ICE.
Ice Thickness Guidelines from the NWS.
For People: 4" or more.
For Snowmobiles or ATV's: 5" or more.
For Cars and Light Trucks: 8"-12" minimum.
For Medium Trucks: 12"-15" minimum
Just posting for those headed for these lakes. Stay on top my friends.
