'Pancake Ice' Forms Along Lake Superior Shore on Thanksgiving Day

A Wisconsin resident captured footage of pancake ice collecting on the shores of Lake Superior on Thursday, November 24, amid chilly and icy conditions.

Video posted to Twitter by user @clkoval shows scenes on Lake Superior’s shore in Ashland, Wisconsin. The ice can be heard crackling in the background.

According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, pancake ice are pieces of circular ice with raised edges that form from rubbing against each other.

Cold temperatures would continue in the area into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Credit: @clkoval via Storyful
