Great Lakes continue move toward normal levels

DULUTH -- Lake Superior declined by less than it usually does in November, and Lakes Huron and Michigan actually rose in a month they nearly always decline.

That was the report Monday from the International Lake Superior Board of Control.

Lake Superior declined a bit less than its usual 2-inch drop for November and sat just 2 inches below its long-term average for Dec. 1. The lake is now 13 inches above the Dec. 1 level in 2012.

Huron and Michigan reversed the usual decline of 2 inches for November and instead rose by 0.4 of an inch. The lakes are now 15 inches higher than on Dec. 1, 2012, and just 13 inches below the long-term average for this time of year.

The lakes have been generally trending back toward normal in 2013 after several years below.
