Lake Temagami opening

After last week's hot spell, hitting a high of 16 Celsius on Friday, the ice shrunk considerably over the weekend. Lake Temagami has open water in the Northwest Arm, Ferguson Bay, Northeast Arm and Cross Lake.

Lake Wanapitei (always one of the first to go) is ice free, as is Wawiagama Lake and the upper basin of Lady Evelyn Lake.

When the clouds were parted, this was best shot available from the weekend, provided by Allan Eustis. He attributes the distortion to the fact that the shot was on a side lobe during the satellite pass.
