I am headed off to (mostly) sunny Arizona for the holidays this year to thaw out for a while. I wanted to take a quick moment to thank you for your support of MPR Weather on MPR News stations (KNOW 91.1FM in the metro) and the Updraft blog. I also wish you and your family all the happiest this holiday season, and all the best in 2011.
I’m looking forward to talking more weather with you in the New Year. If the weather in 2011 is anything close to 2010, it will be another amazing year!
Here’s a quick look back (with links) at some of the incredible Minnesota weather events of 2010.
Crow River surges in Delano
Target Field debuts in 2010.
Tornado near Wadena
-Frequent severe weather outbreaks June 17th to July 17th
-Minnesota leads the nation in tornadoes for the first time on record
-8 of 12 months warmer than average
-“Landicane” 2010: Record low barometric pressure
Other than that…it was a pretty quiet weather year!
See you on January 3rd, 2011!
