According to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laborary (GLERL), total ice coverage across the Great Lakes is at 29.1%. Ice coverage across the Great Lakes as of February 2nd, 2018. A this point last year, there was around 8% of ice coverage. All of the Great Lakes have some amount of ice on them. Here's the break down for each lake: Lake Superior: 21.8% Lake Michigan: 17.08% Lake Huron: 44.76% Lake Erie: 59.07% Lake Ontario: 9.53% Over the next few weeks its likely that more ice will form on the lakes as a cold and snowy pattern is expected across the Upper Midwest into the Northeast.   For WeatherNation, I am Meteorologist Marcus Walter.
