Lake Winnipesaukee 2018 Ice-Out — Latest Since 2001 & ANOTHER On A Thursday!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. The ebb and flow of ice-out dates 1988 to 2018.


Click to ENLARGE. Other ice-outs 115 days in. All on NON-Leap Years (and ‘1900’ was NOT a Leap Year). 4 on a Thursday.


Click to ENLARGE. Ice-out dates 1990 to 2018.


So Winnipesaukee ice-out 2018 was on Thursday, April 26 around 5:40pm.

> >  This was the LATEST ice-out since 2001 when the ice-out was on May 2 (and I remember that).

> >  Another ice-out on a Thursday. We have had more ice-outs on Thursday than any other day, BY FAR.

> >  Last time ice-out was on April 26 was in 1979, 39-years ago.

> >  All ice-outs that have happened 115-days into the year have happened on NON-LEAP Years, so all are on April 26. [115-days in on a Leap-Year would be April 25.]

> >  The average for ice-out was (and still is after this year) 108.2 days in; i.e., April 19 (non-Leap) & April 18 (Leap).

> >  Ice-out in 2003 was on April 25 (114 days). Ice-out in 2008 & 2015 was 113-days in (April 23 & April 24 because one was a Leap).

> >  Ice-outs in 2016, 2012 & 2010 were way below average.

Lake Winnipesaukee [NH] 2017 Ice-Out Occurs On Monday, April 17 — As Predicted.

by Anura Guruge



Click to ENLARGE and study here. My spreadsheet takes into account LEAP YEARS and determines ice-out in terms of days into the year as of January 1 of that year.


So Winnipesaukee ice-out 2017 did take place on Monday, April 17, as was predicted here yesterday.

So it was the DAY AFTER Easter.

Same day it happened in 2013. So nothing too remarkable.

The AVERAGE ice-out is still between April 18 & April 19, so April 17 is v. close to average.

It has fallen on April 17 six times before — as of 1887.

You can see that above.

But, I factor in whether it was a LEAP-YEAR of not.

That makes a difference.

April 17 is 106 days into the year in non-Leap Years. 2017 is NOT a Leap-Year.

Lake Winnipesaukee, NH Ice-Out 2017 Could Be On Monday, April 17.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and study here. My spreadsheet takes into account LEAP YEARS and determines ice-out in terms of days into the year as of January 1 of that year.


So the informed consensus is that the 2017 Winnipesaukee ice-out will most likely happen on Monday, April 17th — the DAY AFTER Easter.

The AVERAGE ice-out is still between April 18 & April 19, so April 17 is v. close to average.

It has fallen on April 17 six times before — as of 1887.

You can see that above.

But, I factor in whether it was a LEAP-YEAR of not.

That makes a difference.

April 17 is 106 days into the year in non-Leap Years. 2017 is NOT a Leap-Year.

So if it happens April 17, 2017 it will be on Day 106 into 2017.

So the last time it happened as such was just 4 years ago, 2013.

Lake Winnipesaukee, NH Ice-Out 2017 Did NOT Happen On Easter; i.e., April 16.

Winnipesaukee ice-out can can happen on Easter but it doesn’t happen that often.

Both are your classic ‘movable feasts’.

The last time it happened on Easter was 2009 — 8 years ago.

In 1938 Easter was on April 17 … and April 17, 2017 is tomorrow.

This year ice-out is expected to be Monday, April 17, 2017 — Easter having been today.

So we could join 1968, 1922, 1921 and 1905 in having ice-out the DAY AFTER Easter.

Enjoy.
