Infrared of

break-up

Some additional water has opened around Temagami, as indicated by the arrows, since the last clear-sky satellite photo from March 26. Many of the black spots here are cloud shadows, making it tricky to spot the black that reveals open water. The one exception to the arrows is Lake Wanapitei that shows by its dark blue tone that the ice there has thinned more than most of Temagami.
