NOAA and the Lake Wenatchee Uplake Cam

A year ago, soon after launching the uplake cam the local weather service office contacted us.  They wanted to use the uplake cam to help correlate their cloud cover models and satellite images with a real time image.  We are happy to help the local weather forecasting effort.  Today on their Facebook page the cam was featured again as they have been watching the ice on the lake FROM SPACE.  They are detecting changes in temperature which indicates the ice is beginning to soften.  On the North Shore last weekend the ice is very think along the shore, where the water level came up.  The ice adjacent to the flag was still 5 or 6 inches thick as measured from our dock.  The last guesses on the flag falling are 3/17 and 4/1, we will know who is closest by the end of the weekend.
