Another Record High Temp 10 Jan 12

Weather records were shattered across the state again on Monday, and forecasters expect more of the same today (TUE), but colder weather moves in tonight. Meteorologist Steve Woolenhouse says it will be in the 30s tonight and Wednesday, with a chance of snow, and that the high on Thursday is only expected to be around 15 degrees. The colder temps over the next few days will actually be about average for this time of year. This comes after the mercury hit 52 degrees in New Ulm Monday afternoon, breaking the old record high temp of 49 degrees set back in 1958. Several other communities across Minnesota saw new record highs on Monday as well, with temperatures generally twice as high as normal for this time of year. Afternoon highs today are expected to reach into the mid-50s, maybe even hitting 60 degrees in southern Minnesota.
