Lake Michigan Still Very Cold for Spring

Share this post

Following the long cold winter of 2014, and a relatively cool spring across the Great Lakes, meteorologists say current water temperatures on Lake Michigan are some of the coldest in recent history for this time of year.   The National Weather Service in Chicago says water surface temperature at the south buoy was reported at 36 degrees Thursday morning.  By comparison, during the record warm spring of 2012 the south buoy was already reporting low 50-degree surface water temperatures by the same date. Surface water temperatures are not nearly as cold nearer to shore, where the water is shallower, but they're still cold. A few days ago the surface water temperature observation for the Chicago shore was only 58 degrees.
