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