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.

Lake Winnipesaukee, NH Ice-Out 2016 — Friday, March 18; Breaks Old Record By 5 Full Days.

by Anura Guruge


2016 Lake Winnipesaukee Ice-Out was declared
just before noon on

Friday, March 18, 2016.

77 Days into the year.

Previous (known record), 2010 & 2012, was 82 days in.

Remember Leap Years bring in the dates, post February 29, by one.
So both March 23 & 24 are 82 days into the year depending on Leap Year.

Coincidentally, and very coincidentally, 2016 & 2015 ice-outs both on a Friday.

Most have occurred on Thursdays.
