Lake Winnipesaukee, NH Ice-Out 2017 Could Be On Monday, April 17.

Click to ENLARGE and study here. My spreadsheet takes into account LEAP YEARS and determines ice-out in terms of days into the year as of January 1 of that year.


So the informed consensus is that the 2017 Winnipesaukee ice-out will most likely happen on Monday, April 17th — the DAY AFTER Easter.

The AVERAGE ice-out is still between April 18 & April 19, so April 17 is v. close to average.

It has fallen on April 17 six times before — as of 1887.

You can see that above.

But, I factor in whether it was a LEAP-YEAR of not.

That makes a difference.

April 17 is 106 days into the year in non-Leap Years. 2017 is NOT a Leap-Year.

So if it happens April 17, 2017 it will be on Day 106 into 2017.

So the last time it happened as such was just 4 years ago, 2013.

Winnipesaukee ice-out can can happen on Easter but it doesn’t happen that often.

Both are your classic ‘movable feasts’.

The last time it happened on Easter was 2009 — 8 years ago.

In 1938 Easter was on April 17 … and April 17, 2017 is tomorrow.

This year ice-out is expected to be Monday, April 17, 2017 — Easter having been today.

So we could join 1968, 1922, 1921 and 1905 in having ice-out the DAY AFTER Easter.

Enjoy.
