Ice Out on Lake Sunapee will certainly break the record in 2012 and will occur far earlier than normal. Will it be March 22?
It’s still early, and fog hangs over the lake. However, large expanses of open water are visible. The ice has looked black and increasingly thin for days. The forecast for today is sunny, with a high near 80.
March 29, 1921, and again on March 29, 1946, are the earliest Ice Out dates recorded through 2011, according to the official chart maintained by the town of Sunapee. Click on the chart for a larger view.
