ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- After flirting with a record for a few days, Lake Michigan did reach an all-time high for ice coverage over the weekend.

NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory confirmed Tuesday that the record was set on Saturday with 93.29-percent ice coverage. The previous record of 93.1-percent was set in 1977, with records dating to 1973.

The ice coverage has receded a bit since Saturday with temperatures on both sides of the lake in Michigan and Wisconsin hitting 50 degrees on Monday.
