The latest weekly water levels report and forecast from USACE shows that Michigan-Huron’s level continues to recover from recent lows. I’ve updated the graphic forecast on the Navigation page. The current prediction is that Michigan-Huron this summer will be about five inches about its level last year, closing to within about eight inches of the historic mean. “Over the next month,” says USACE, “Lake Superior is projected to rise 2 inches, while Lake Michigan-Huron is predicted to rise 4 inches.” Superior might be slightly lower this summer.
