Vermonters warned of weakening ice on lakes

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Vermonters are being warned to stay off the ice on the state's lakes and ponds.

Despite recent cold temperatures, the sun is shining brighter and longer and the heat is being absorbed by water below the surface, melting ice from the bottom up.

So officials from the state of Vermont and the U.S. Coast Guard are warning that even if a surface seems solid it is likely weakened significantly. Warmer temperatures forecast over the next few days will degrade the ice even more.  Go to full article

This Weekend in the Adirondacks

John Warren from the Adirondack Almanack brings your look at outdoor recreation conditions around the Adirondacks for this weekend.

Despite the passing of the first day of spring, winter conditions continue, with the entire region picking-up an inch or two of snow on Wednesday night, two to four inches in the southern half of the region. Additional snow opportunities through Saturday could leave a few more inches of wet snow, before conditions turn colder for the second half of the weekend. Expect conditions to harden-up again for Sunday which could make some trails icy into early next week.  Go to full article

Finally, a sign of spring: Maple Weekend is here

Looking for that real sign of spring? Don't look out the window. New York's first crop of 2014 is coming in. The sugar shanties will be going full bore this weekend for the state's official Maple Weekend. There are some celebrations around the region and plenty of places to taste the freshest maple syrup.

New York is the country's second biggest producer of the sweet nectar, behind Vermont. Producers will put out more than 2 million taps this spring.

New York's Acting Commissioner of Agriculture Richard Ball spoke with David Sommerstein. He says it's the time to celebrate a tradition and an economic driver.  Go to full article

No, the North Country's not the coldest place on earth

Martha Foley and Dr. Curt Stager discuss the hottest and coldest places on earth. Death Valley is no longer the hottest. Libya takes (or bakes) the cake these days. The lowest, as you would expect, is in Antarctica. How cold? You don't want to know.  Go to full article

What's up in the sky, and what's up with the weather

The night sky, and so much more today from St. Lawrence University Physics professor Aileen O'Donoghue.

In fact it's a double-header today: the sky, and the wobbly polar vortex.  Go to full article
