Southern MN Record High Temps 19 Dec 11

Sunday’s temperatures broke several old records across southern Minnesota. The National Weather Service’s Michelle Margraf says that Chippewa County warmed up the most, with Montevideo hitting 61-degrees and Milan topping out at 60. In New Ulm, the high temp on Sunday was 48-degrees, not quite breaking the old record high of 50-degrees set back in 1976. In comparison, however, on December 18th of last year in New Ulm the high temp was only 18-degrees…..and there was 18-inches of snow on the ground.
