LANSING (WKZO) -- The ice coverage of the Great Lakes continues to change with the day, and is now backing away from a record.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration puts the ice coverage for the five lakes at 81.4-percent, down seven-percent from late last week.  The record of nearly 95-percent coverage was set in February 1979.

Lake Michigan’s ice coverage has dropped with warmer temperatures over the weekend, and most of Lake Ontario remains free of ice coverage.
