Hi John. I was at -19F near Duluth this morning (I know other outlying areas up north were probably MUCH colder). I know we didn't approach record territory, but subjectively, is it somewhat rare to have temps this cold in mid-March? Thanks!

Not really, especially for northern MN. It is pretty common to have early morning lows dip below zero in March with a clear and calm night.

What is unusual is to have the daytime highs be so cold at this time of the year, but that is going to change for the weekend.

International Falls set a record for March 12, falling to -23F at 6:38 am.

If we had an officially reporting thermometer on the Ash River, we'd a beat them; mine said -36F at 7:30 am yesterday.
