Short summary
Water temperatures and stratification in three morphometrically different lakes over the century are examined. Simulations showed that epilimnetic temperatures increased, hypolimnetic temperatures decreased, the length of the stratified season increased due to earlier stratification onset and later fall overturn, and stability increased. Results showed that wind speed has a large effect on temperature and stratification variables, sometimes greater than changes in air temperature.
