Minnesota Winters: Bitter Cold, Springlike Warmth, and Everything in Between

"Record Report"
Hennepin [Minnesota], (January 31, 2009)

"Statement as of 7:40 PM CST on January 31, 2009

"... Record high temperature tied today at Minneapolis...

"The high temperature at Minneapolis international Airport reached a
balmy 46 degrees on this last day in January. This was enough
to tie the previous record set on the 31st of January 1995.

It was a warm day, here in central Minnesota. We've still got our snow, though. Down the road, in Glenwoood, the high was 42°F and the low 17°F: 25°F and 3°F are what's average.

Being near the center of the North American continent, our climate isn't boring. Today's record high over in Glenwood was 40°F, back in 1954: and the record low was -37°F, in 1951. (
