Default Ice Movement

I think we will see some serious movement between today and tomorrow. Expected high temperatures this afternoon, along with rain (possible thunderstorms) and a bit of wind. The wind duration will be the key.

Yes, but if you bring the family you will need a good sized boat to keep up with "social distancing".

Union Leader reported that a man riding a fast bike went through the ice 250-300 ft from shore. Turns out that would be rte 11B (?). Fact is that he broke through maybe 60 ft from right below the Bypass of ramp. Yesterday it was still overall ice locked.

Default Lily

Lily pond is 50% open water as of 6:00 PM today.

From my vantage point overlooking the broads, ice will be going out very soon and I see no reason why I wonít be quarantined on Welch island next Saturday!!

Dan

P.S. Don can you combine the other ice out thread with this one...

Yeah, the warmer weather is helping, and the wind is really doing its thing! The ice on Mirror Lake is disappearing before my eyes.

Check out the Webcam: http://www.mirrorlakenh.com/cam.htm

It may be possible to kayak all the way around the lake at this point. Wouldn't want to fall in !! That water is C-O-L-D

Broads - Wolfeboro Neck looking out to Rattlesnake.

After lots of progress and ice movement yesterday, it was in the teens last night and only now cracking 20 degrees, so most open areas have a thin skim back on.

@smith point boater, and ishoot308, Thanks for the photos ..........

I wonder what the actuall water temp is? With all that ice I would guess 32.01 degrees F But I don't know the real answer.

Itís almost always 34 degrees at this point. I have taken water temps through an ice fishing hole in the past and again it was 34 degrees.

Honestly, I donít understand why the water under a frozen lake isnít 32.1 degrees but it never is...always seems to be 34.

I too am fascinated and follow water temps religiously through the season mainly to target salmon. Itís amazing what just a couple degrees difference can make especially during early spring fishing.

I love watching the nature shows and once, I had seen it explained so perfectly.

I guess I'm not alone when it comes to some of these questions.

I do know why it floats .......... but its not the easiest thing to explain. A lot of the explanation has to do with understanding what happens at 39 degress f. Note that I typed 39 not 32.

wow...looks like you could launch out of Ellacoya and make it to the southern shore of Welch with very little ice breaking. Of course HUGE risk of having a sheet of ice crush your boat against the shore line there should a southern wind kick up.

Soon....very soon...

Glendale and Belknap Point today:

It looks closed from Glendale to FL 26 today but should be open tomorrow.

Quite a bit of ice north of the route out to Welch much of which will get blown south today likely headed for Wolfeboro bay.

Smith cove today is more than half iced in.

Love seeing all these pictures. With the marinas not staffed by the stay at home order I wonder how many will be getting a later start than usual. Has anyone heard how this may effect those that depend on the Marinas services?

For those of us who pay for inside storage, it effects us greatly! We typically open the house the weekend after ice out and are there til the first week of November. My wife works from home so once she's there she's all set, while I have to commute to my " essential " job in Dover. I was planning on opening up next weekend, but was told I may not be able to get either boat out of storage til sometime in May. I'm looking into borrowing a friends extra boat to get us through in the meantime. I do understand that the marinas are looking out for their employees, but it's gonna cause me to rethink storage options at the end of the season.
