Question,

Anybody know how to locate water temperatures in the Northeast Ohio area? Mostly Lake Milton, thats where I usually am, but I was curious if anything like this existed. I know it is a state park, so who knows whats out there... Thanks

I know that the Akron Beacon Journal used to post the temps in their weekly fishing report, but I'm not sure if they still do that or not. If you can't find anything on Milton, I'm sure that Berlin or Westbranch would provide a comparable.
OR.... use this general rule of thumb.....
If the ice is thawed in most spots, it's plenty warm to ski!
Good luck.

In South Carolina the state list this under the Dept. of Natural Resources. I have also have seen some things on the Army Corps of Eng. You may also try N.O.A.A.

I'm on the other side of Ohio but the temps should be comparible I would think. We were at 68 degrees before the cold front and week of rain hit us. Now were are at 62 degrees.

if your lake is included. For some, you can output lake level and temp.

USGS for Ohio (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/oh/nwis/rt)

To select your state, pick from list in upper right corner. (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis)

this is a great resource to figure out the lake levels:
http://wmw.lrp.usace.army.mil/current/forecast.html

Milton MNOH 930 948 951 * 947.85 103

if you don't understand the #'s let me know...pretty easy once you get the abbreviations for pool levels:

PP
Permanent pool - the minimum pool elevation for the project.
SP
Summer Pool - the target Summer Pool elevation for the project.
FP
Full Pool - the elevation of the pool at maximum flood control storage.
