The North Pole turned into a lake

July 25, 2013. Instead of snow and ice, whirling in the wind, now a greenish-blue lake at least feet deep laps around a webcam, located at the North Pole. Meltwater lake started to form on July 13, after two weeks of warm weather in the high Arctic.

In early July, the temperature was 2 to 5 degrees Fahrenheit (1 to 3 degrees C) higher than the average for the most part of the Arctic Ocean, according to the National Snow & Ice Data Center.
