Winter sports enthusiasts, beware: thinning ice is quickly becoming a danger as temperatures warm up across eastern Ontario.
Daytime temperatures in Ottawa have been reaching highs well above zero over the last week, hitting 9.9 C on Wednesday.
The early spring thaw comes just as snowmobilers and ice fishermen are hoping to eke out a few final weeks of winter fun. On Friday morning, two ice fishing tents could still be seen out on the Ottawa River near Petrie Island.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/ottawa-ice-rescue-prevention-1.4559412
