Lake Winnipesaukee [NH] 2019 Ice-Out Was Wednesday, April 24 — @ 5:24am.

by Anura Guruge


Prior instances when it was on April 24 (non-leap years)
and April 23 (leap years).

I take LEAP YEARS into account.
I count days from January 1, taking into account leap years.
So, April 21 & April 22 are 111-days in From Jan. 1
depending on whether it was Leap Year or not.

So, it wasn’t April 22nd as most people had expected. It was two-day later.

But, it was 2-days earlier than last year.

Same as 2015.

2014 was one-day off, but was also on a Wednesday.

Nowhere close to being even close to ‘long’. Longest was 132-days (since Jan. 1) in 1888.

Also, not the shortest. SHORTEST was just 3-years ago. 2016. 77-days, March 18,

Prevailing consensus is that it most likely will be April 22 in 2019. But, there could always be a pesky little floe floating around that could delay it by 12-, 24-, 36 or even 48-hours.

I am just going with the flow.

Lake Winnipesaukee [NH] Ice-Out: Longest [i.e., Latest] Occurrences.

by Anura Guruge



↑↑↑↑

1964 was a LEAP YEAR and I take that into account.
I count days from January 1, taking into account leap years.
So, April 29 in a non-leap year is the SAME as April 28 in a Leap Year.



So, of course, we have had ice-outs as late as May 12 — albeit not of late. 

2018 [i.e., last year], on April 26, was pretty late. Don’t think it will be as late this year. But, I suspect we are still at least a good week away.

So, March 24 in a non-leap year is the SAME as March 23 in a Leap Year.



So, of course, we have had ice-outs by now; viz. April 5.

And we don’t have to go to far. Just in the last 9-years, with 2016 THE RECORD since the 1887 — the first year for which we have reliable data.

I was in Wolfeboro two-days ago. The ice was very white and looked pretty solid.

Yesterday, the ice on The Broads looked black. That means it would typically break-up within 48-hours. I have seen it happen — ONCE. Magical. One second we have ice, the next it is ALL gone as far as the eye can see. This was in 1999 or 2000 when I was living waterfront in Gilford.

Mid-April might be good for this year too.

Though it was ‘April 3‘ the temperature was just in the 40s Fahrenheit, the ground was frozen and there were plenty of piles of snow. So, it was a treat to see all these fresh flowers outside — albeit under cover. Of course, I could NOT resist. Enjoy. Hopefully Spring will arrive by mid-May 2019.
