ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- A climatologist in Ann Arbor is predicting a cooler than normal summer and an early start to winter due to the amount of ice coverage still on the Great Lakes. Jia Wang of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory says the lakes are still 26-percent ice covered at the start of May compared to two-percent last year. He said that should result in a cold summer and a cooler fall. Shipping has started very slowly due to the amount of ice still covering Lake Superior.
