Minnesota temperatures rise fast bringing ice from lake into homes

ISLE, Minn. — On the shores of Lake Mille Lacs, just south of Garrison, it finally feels like spring. But the lake looks more like winter.

This year, many of the lakes in northern Minnesota still have ice on them.
According to the Minnesota State Climatology Office, lakes north of the Twin Cities are approaching record late ice out dates set in 1950. Just last year, many of the same lakes set records for the earliest ice out dates.

The temperature bounces from icy cold to summer breeze almost instantaneously, depending on whether wind is blowing off the frozen lake.
