Another day of record warmth is on tap across Minnesota as we are looking at temperatures well into the 60s for most of the southern half of the state. Here are some record events yesterday, according to the National Weather Service in Chanhassen.
A RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 66 DEGREES WAS SET AT TWIN CITIES MN TODAY. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD OF 59 SET IN 1878.
A RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 54 DEGREES WAS TIED AT ST CLOUD MN TODAY. THIS TIES THE OLD RECORD OF 54 SET IN 1977.
Some of the maximum temperature records in jeopardy today include the Twin Cities (61 degrees in 1902), St. Cloud (60 degrees in 1902), and Rochester (60 degrees in 1990).
Rain will move into the area overnight, but will only last through the morning hours before we stay warm all this week with temperatures approaching 70 degrees across the area.
