Area Weather: Warmer weather on its way to area
We had a mild day on Thursday. The morning low was a mild 17 in Morris. Average lows this time of the year are typically in the lower teens. Highs across the region warmed-up into the 20s and 30s. Morris hit 26 degrees on Thursday. Another disturbance arrive on Friday with the main problem strong winds that caused blowing and drifting of snow. A few spots received an inch or so of snow with this system.
There will be 40s in our future for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. There will be slight chances for rain or snow. Could there even be some 50s in the area next week? There is a possbility.
In 2009 cold conditions arrived with a new record for the lowest maximum temperature in St Cloud for this date. The high temperature in St Cloud was only 4 degrees, which broke the previous record lowest maximum temperature of 5 degrees that was set in 1948.
The higher the humidity, the better sound travels. Some English people gauged the chances of rain by the clarity with which they heard church bells sound.
