Winter Arrives After Another Record Day 11 Jan 12

The January spring in Minnesota is over for now with cold air and some snow moving into the state today (WED). Meteorologist Tony Zaleski says that highs in the teens and 20s over the next couple of days should help out ice anglers and other winter sports enthusiasts at least, but that ice across the state remains unsafe. Today’s winter-like weather comes after several days of record-high temps in Minnesota, including on Tuesday. Redwood Falls reached 57 degrees yesterday, breaking the old record of 52 set in 1990. New Ulm set another new record as well with a high of 55 degrees, breaking the record of 50 degrees, also from 1990. Elsewhere on Tuesday, the mercury climbed to 54 in Mankato, Duluth set a new record-high of 47 degrees, Brainerd hit record territory at 51, and International Falls set a new record with 40 degrees.
