Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- Due to increasingly warm temperatures, the U.S. Coast Guard Station Duluth is issuing a warning of the possibility of weakened ice.
The combination of warmer temperatures and shifting winds has caused extremely hazardous ice conditions throughout western Lake Superior and surrounding rivers.
The Coast Guard says there is a possibility of ice breaking apart with people ice fishing and going on the ice.
"Ice conditions along the north shore and western Lake Superior are rapidly changing and dangerously unstable," said Senior Chief Petty Officer Robert Pump, officer-in-charge of Station Duluth. "With the prediction of south winds and warming temperatures over the next seven days, a high probability of the ice pack to break up and set adrift exists."
