The weather has been unseasonably warm, frequently experiencing daytime highs above 80F, with little to no wind. Crow Lake water temps have shot up to 60F at times, but the water is colder down just a few feet below the surface. Trees are dumping pollen and cotton on the water, making it ugly along the shore. A couple evening and nighttime thunderstorms and rain showers are helping to keep the grass growing.
