Summary: Very Cold and calm.

Wind: Local conditions are Light.
Ice & Snow Report: Time To Ride!    Ice Thickness close to shore in front of the Wind Power Surf Shop:  10 - 12 inches with 6 - 8 inches farther out to the heave (about a 1/2 mile offshore).  All the snow is gone and the ice surface is pretty smooth.  Good for ice sailing and kiting.  Conditions are great and safe on this side of the heave. (updated: Jan. 9, 12 pm)
When driving out on the ice, always remove your seatbelt and roll the windows down. Use Ice Cleats/Grippers for traction when walking on bare ice. Do not go out without wearing ice picks. Use extreme caution when out on the ice. Be EXTRA CAREFUL by the heave which is a 1/2 mile out. Slowly check the area you are going to ride before you go for speed. Enjoy!

Tabular Data for Saturday Feb 16th, 2019

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.
