Yep, the water levels are up and a lot! We will have to see how it plays out the rest of the year but some of the pictures of Gull Island I seen over the weekend show no island at all which always makes for a interesting Jobbie Nooner!

All the Great Lakes continue to have high water levels. The level of Lake

The level of Lake Michgian/Huron is up a whopping 7 inches in the last month and up 10″ in the last year. The level is now 16″ above the April average. It’s still 18″ below the highest level reached in the last 100 years, which was in 1986 (and 46″ above the lowest water level ever recorded in April in 1964). The water level of Lake Superior is up 1 inch in the last month and up 2″ in the last year. Superior is 9″ above the long-term April average. Lake Erie has gained 8″ in the last month and 17″ year-to-year. Erie is now 17″ above the century average for April. Lake Ontario is up 6″ in the last month and up a whopping 20″ year-to-year. Ontario is 10″ above the April average level. Lake St. Clair is up 8″ in the last month, up 12″ in the last year and is now 18″ above the April average. All of the rivers that connect the Great Lakes have above average flow and that should continue at least into early summer.
