The temps are have been very mild the past 2 days with highs on Tuesday hitting the upper 50's (14-15C) and staying above freezing Tuesday night and getting up to 50 today (10C). A fair bit of snow melted yesterday and the slush crust on the top of the ice has softened up a bit. Ice thickness would still be pretty close to the same as 2 days ago. Forecast is still to be warm all week with rain over the weekend. Check back often for new pics and updates and to make you place your guess!

The ice is pretty solid yet but starting to get a little soft on top where there's slush ice. Taking a test measurement had just over 26" of ice depth overall, but the top 6" was the frozen white slush ice. The slush ice is poor ice as very porous and full of air bubbles. It softens up pretty quick in the warm temps. The remaining 20" of "blue" solid ice is pretty tight yet with minimal signs of crystalizing or honeycombing. Forecast this week is above norm temps all week with lows staying above freezing and highs into the low 50F's (13C). This should kick start the melt pretty quick!

Here's a few photos of ice conditions around the Sioux Narrows bridge. Just recently we have started to see some open water around and under the bridge, the rest of the lake still has lots of solid ice with a mostly frozen 8-10" slush layer on top.
