Thermometers across southern Minnesota will push past the 60-degree mark Wednesday afternoon. The last time the Twin Cities hit 60 degrees? More than five months ago, on Oct. 22.
A “thermal ribbon” works across southern Minnesota Wednesday afternoon. Snow cover keeps temperatures somewhat in check up north.
Wednesday looks like the warmest day for the next week or so. Temperatures bottom out behind the next cool front Saturday. But overall, the weather maps look a lot like early spring as we turn the corner into April.
