Northland records fall: (From the Duluth NWS)
Most Number of 45 Degree or Higher Temps at Duluth for January
“Today, January 10th, marks the 4th day this month that the temperature has reached at least 45 degrees. Never in recorded weather history has a January produced more 45 degree or higher temperatures in Duluth. This breaks the old record of 3 days set in 1877.”
January reality check Wednesday!
The long awaited and well forecast arctic front is blasting through Minnesota Wednesday.
A couple of waves of snow Wednesday & Thursday look to produce anywhere from a coating to as much as 2″ in parts of Minnesota including the metro.
Then cold: A shot at Zero?
The fresh snow cover and arctic air may be just enough to make a run at our first 0 degree temps of the winter season in the metro early Thursday & Friday morning.
My hunch is we’ll bottom out in the single digits above zero at MSP. I expect a few sub-zero temps west of the metro Thursday & Friday morning.
