    ICE is forming on the shoreline as you can see in the camera.  This ice is very rough and not recommended to walk too far from shore.  We hope water season is over and not ready to switch Weather Center to Winter Season mode.  Lake Poygan and Buttes des Mortes have more ice as can be seen in the MODIS Satellite images.  It is a long time until spring, so hopefully we can get one more day on the water.

Tabular Data for Tuesday Nov 20th, 2018

A summary of Today's observations are shown in the table below. All measured values are time averages over the 15 minute interval, except wind gusts which by definition are a maximum value. Windsock ratings of 2 or higher are indicated. Observations during daylight hours are shown with light green background for date and time cells. This table is updated every time any graph is updated. Also, clicking a data row will toggle highlighting on/off for easy reference.

The Weather Center records observations every minute (1,440 minutes per day) and that set of data is 'thinned' down to a reasonable number of data points (96 using a 15 minute interval) without sacrificing much data integrity. You can learn more about the system, data and database on the information and sensor pages.
