Warm Thanksgiving across Minnesota

It was an unusually warm Thanksgiving across much of Minnesota as many locations saw record high temperatures for the day.  Redwood Falls reached 66 degrees, just two degrees shy of the state record for the date of 68 degrees set at Wheaton in 1984.  It was also the fourth warmest Thanksgiving in Twin Cities history.

According to the MPR WeatherTalk blog, these locations across the state tied or broke records for November 24th:

  • 65 degrees, Canby
  • 64 degrees, Tracy
  • 61 degrees, Austin
  • 60 degrees, Rochester
  • 59 degrees (tied), Minneapolis-St. Paul
  • 57 degrees, Fargo-Moorhead
  • 55 degrees (tied), Detroit Lakes

Our Thanksgiving weather goes along with the theme this week of warm weather.  The week started off cool, but between November 23rd and November 25th (last three days), the Twin Cities is running almost 20 degrees above normal for high temperatures.  The trend is the same for much of southern Minnesota.  What season is it again?
