Water Temperatures Still Cold Over the Holiday

The holiday weekend is synonymous with being in the water, but you’ll have to be very careful in the great lakes.

The Coast Guard says water temperatures in West Grand Traverse Bay are still very cold.

Despite how warm or even hot it is outside over the next few days, right now the water temperature is less than 60 degrees. That temperature is chilly enough to put you at risk of hypothermia.

If you plan to take a swim in any of the lakes or bays over the weekend, make sure to have a plan and let someone know you’re going in the water.
