April 15, 2015: Satellite Comparison

I’m not flying today, but I’ll be up tomorrow, and I should be able to post new pictures then. In the meantime, here’s how April progressed as seen by the MODIS satellites. This first shot is from April 6th.

Lake of the Woods, April 6th, 2015.

Solid white ice covered the lake. There was a little open water, but it was too small to see easily. Now here’s yesterday’s shot.

Lake of the Woods, April 15th.

Much darker ice all over the lake, with open water visible at the mouth of the Rainy River at the south end, around the North West Angle near the center of the picture and on the Winnipeg River at the top. Here’s a labeled version of the same picture, to help you get oriented.

Lastly, here’s a link to my first post of 2015, which has a satellite picture from March 2nd. Big changes since then! The forecast is for another sunny day tomorrow, so I hope to have some fresh pictures to take you into the weekend.
