What's up with the weather?

Yesterday morning, it was, I believe, -1 outside, and the driveway (and also apparently the Indiana Toll Road) was coated in ice.  This morning, it's 35 and the snow and ice are all melting.  Tonight we're supposed to get thick fog.  Tomorrow, it might get as high as 60, but tomorrow evening and Sunday we're supposed to get more snow.

I know that the motto of Illinois weather is "wait five minutes, it'll change", but this is even more erratic than normal.  It's unusual for us to get sub-zero weather in December but we've broken into negativeland several nights in a row the past week or so. 

Methinks there's more to this global warming idea than just some talking heads.
