We are already seeing signs of climate change throughout the Great Lakes region. Average annual temperatures are increasing; severe rainstorms have become more frequent; winters are getting shorter; and the duration of lake ice cover is decreasing. If current trends continue for Lake Huron, further reductions in water level may be expected for the lake and its tributaries. This would exacerbate navigation, and a wide range of fisheries and water resource issues could occur if Lake Huron experienced additional warming.
