Water is densest at 39 F and therefore flipping will usually occur when spring meltoff warms the normally lighter 32 F water on top. Once it reaches 39 F it will sink and thus causing a lake flip. This will vary with different latitudes and bodies of water. It is also affected seasonally.
The water needs to be approximately 39 degrees F. At this temperature, the water expands and becomes less dense allowing it to float above the warmer water.
