OMAHA (DTN) -- Michigan's Great Lakes started to see ice develop on them Nov. 15, the earliest in at least 40 years, according to the Daily Great Lakes and Seaway Shipping News on Nov. 25.

The daily shipping newsletter said the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory had reported that by Nov. 20, "Three of Michigan's Great Lakes had ice starting to form. Lake Superior and Lake Michigan were one-half percent ice covered, while Lake Huron had 1% ice. Lake Erie was not reporting any ice as of Nov. 20. Decent early season ice coverage records date back to 1973."
