Lake Winnipesaukee, NH Ice-Out 2016 — Ice-Out BEFORE Easter Is Not That Unusual.

by Anura Guruge


The RECORD
2016 Lake Winnipesaukee Ice-Out,
declared Friday, March 18, 2016,
77 Days into the Year
(while prior record was 82 days).

See this post for all the statistics.

Some have commented that 2016 Ice-Out is before Easter
— 2016 Easter on Sunday, March 27.

This, however, is not that unusual given that
Easter can occur as late as April 25.

27 instances of Ice-Out before Easter
(counting 2016) AND 4 cases when
Ice-Out was ON Easter.

That means that in the 130 years that we have records for,
Ice-Out happened on/before Easter 24% of the time.
