Record Warm Month 19 Mar 12

Only a very small portion of Minnesota still has snow on the ground.  A good deal of the Arrowhead, especially Lake and Cook counties, has a white covering but even that’s fading fast after a weekend of record-setting warmth across the state.  The “Nation’s Icebox,” International Falls hit 79-degrees on Sunday, setting not only a new temperature record for that day but for the entire month of March. New Ulm hit 80-degrees on Sunday as well, the latest in a string of record-setting temperatures. Rain is expected across the area today (MON), with highs approaching 70-degrees.
