Stable water levels forecast for Great Lakes


DULUTH — U.S. government agencies coordinating the monitoring and control of Great Lakes water levels forecast Wednesday that the lakes will remain relatively stable over the next six months, with no movement back toward record-low water levels but not rising much above average.

The forecast for Lake Superior well into 2014 is expected to remain within 2 to 3 inches of the long-term average water level -- unless the winter is snowier than usual or if evaporation slows.
