Watch: Ice Needles Form on Minnesota LakeSee the video
With temperatures in Minnesota soaring near 80 degrees, it may have felt like spring this week, but it sure didn't look like like it. Recent late season snowfalls combined with dramatic temperature swings have created some unusual weather conditions, like ice needles forming on Medicine Lake, seen in this video submitted to local news station KARE.
Spiky needles of ice can be seen spewing out of the lake, a phenomenon that occurs when warm winds blow sheets of thin ice on the lake toward the shoreline, causing the ice to splinter into millions of ice needles, according to KARE's weather report.
