CHICAGO (WGN) — Due to westerly winds and above-freezing temperatures, ice has been breaking away from Lake Michigan.

On Monday, NewsNation affiliate WGN’s tower camera on top of the Hancock Center captured ice floes breaking away from the shore.

On a prior day, another time lapse shows a large ice floe breaking away.

On Tuesday, the air was the mildest it had been in over eight weeks with temperatures reaching over 45 degrees.
