Ice On The Ant

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen evidence of ice on the Ant between Barton and Richardsons this week?

Although we have had a couple of frosts, the water is still a bit warm for lots of it! Indeed frosts this side of Christmas down here are pretty rare and whilst we may have one or two over the next week, I would be surprised if they resulted in significant freezing in the dykes and upper reaches.

I could be wrong but that would be quite unusual this early in the winter

Ditto, came up the Ant today, no ice, in fact it was quite warm 

Big contrast to Monday and Tuesday!

It is that bit where the tree cover disappears where the cut through between Stalham Dyke and Sutton Dyke is, that goes first. 

A few times I have left Broadsedge only to have to turn back there even if I can see open water beyond. Gays also is an early freezer.

So how's the river ice situation doing?    Especially regarding Richo's?      I see from today the wx temps are due to be climbing and staying above freezing for a fair while.  Assuming Richo's dyke is currently frozen over, do we think it might be clear come next weekend?

Sutton Staithe's ice was thin and well broken today if that is indicative. It's a clear sky though and the temp is dropping fast. There'll be ice tonight I reckon!
