Latest St-Lawrence conditions

The ice situation in the St. Lawrence gulf is still progressing.
The ice cover is above 90% (called compact ice). The thickness is 15-30 cm (grey-white ice) and in some area 30-70 cm (first year to thin first-year ice).
We are starting to see ice pressure warning as you can see on Environment Canada Warning table.
Ice is also starting to be more present in the Sydney area.
This is currently the pilot station for ice advisors. Eventually, the pilot boat may have to shift from Sydney to Port-aux-Basques in Newfoundland.
The situation on Lake St. Pierre remains stable.
