According to local TV Station KARE 11 some parts of northern Minnesota hit a new record for amount of snowfall on May 16. International Falls, MN had 0.3 inches of snow. Bringing the 2008-2009 winter total to 125.6 inches.
Yesterday, May 19 the Twin Cities Metro area hit a new record high, according to the Pioneer Press. The record was broken by a whopping 8 degrees at 97. Yikes! You’ve got to love this line from the article though:
