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

On Monday, 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.

The current air is the mildest in over eight weeks with temperatures reaching over 45 degrees Tuesday.
