Cold snap stops ice-out progress

Since March 26, temperatures have barely topped freezing during the day and stayed below at night, bringing the thaw to a near halt.

Clouds have obstructed the satellite view.

The Temagami First Nation's airboat is running steady and conditions are dangerous for snowmobiles.

Break-up record: 1946

Elders on Bear Island say the earliest break-up was just after the end of the Second World War in early April.

The archives of the Temiskaming Speaker confirm how accurate their cultural memory is. It reports Lake Timiskaming's record-setting break-up in 1946 on April 9.

Temagami generally goes within a day or two of Timiskaming.
