Breaking statewide record high temperatures in Minnesota is a rarity, but each day Friday through Monday we will have a chance to do so. Here are the statewide record high temperature values for March 16-19.
March 16, 75 F at Fairmont in 1930 (surely to be broken today)
March 17 (St Patrick’s Day), 81 F at Granite Falls in 1894
March 18, 84 F at Canby in 1921
March 19, 80 F at Pipestone in 1921
All of these will the exception of March 18th, may fall by the wayside, due to this unusually long March heat wave we are having.
