It looks solid after a deep-freeze since Monday and a windless day. But there is one spot on the image in the Hub of Lake Temagami, west of Alexander Island, marked by the arrow. In the afternoon, travelers on the ice confirmed it is frozen. A quick freeze-up once it got cold.

  BACKGROUND: Past freeze-up dates


Black open water or thin, clear ice
Dull/ dark blue thin ice with little or no snow cover
