Could the snow that we received on Sunday be the last snow this season? Much of the region saw some snow on Sunday. Anywhere from a trace on up to a dusting of snow were common across the area. Temperatures were chilly for this time of the year as highs were only in the 30s and 40s.
On Monday, it was another unusual day as parts of northern Minnesota were only in the 40s for highs, while southern Minnesota was near 80 degrees. Some scattered showers and thunderstorms were also found across the state.
Temperatures were in the 50s for much of the region on Tuesday with lingering clouds.
For Wednesday, expect a mostly cloudy sky with highs in the lower 60s expected. The sky is projected to clear out for Thursday and into the start of the weekend. Highs should reach the low- to mid-60s for Thursday and Friday with some 70s possible by Saturday.
By Sunday, we could see some rain returning with temperatures in the 60s projected.
Hopefully, for many of you, you have seen the last snow this season.
Weather history: On this date in 1966 records show that “a heavy snowstorm hits northern Minnesota.” There were reports of “10 inches of snow on the ground across a wide chuck of northern Minnesota.”
Weather facts: A 2012 study found that “when college students looked at cute images of baby animals, they were more productive in the lab.” In addition, when looking at squirrels frolicking outside your office window might make someone more productive as well.
