How Has the Current Storm Influenced Water Levels?

To find out, go to the NOAA Lake Michigan Water Level Displacement web page.  Note the difference between Chicago and the north shore of Lake Michigan, and then the less extreme but still significant level changes in Grand Traverse Bay and Green Bay. Click on the Animation Button to see the action over time.  Subtract 5 hours from GMT to get local (EDT) time. Graphics for the other Great Lakes are also available. Thanks, NOAA.  Very Cool.
