Hi Barry,
My info is not official.Long-duration NW/SE high wind events north basin waves to 6.5 m. 5 m. in the S basin Regular strong winds often produce 1.5 to 3 metre waves in the south basin. Average wave height? I'd guess that the fall average would be just under one metre. Winter? - the lake freezes all the way across mid Nov. in a cold year, or the 3rd week in Dec. in a warm year. By the end of Feb, ice is between 1.2 and 2 metres thick.  The ice breaks up in April. Access data buoys at
