It is now the month of June and there is still ice hovering on the southern shores of Lake Superior making it now the latest this much ice has been on the lake this late in the season. The last time ice was around this late into the year was back in 2003 when the frozen water finally melted on May 29th. Here is what the shores of northern Michigan looked like on Saturday…

Ice has all collected on the southern end of the lake and can be seen by satellite image… this one taken this past Thursday.
The lake is now 2.1% ice covered but is expected to be ice free by the weekend.
