The National Weather Service reported that not only did 19 degrees set a record for the date in International Falls (the old record was 24 degrees, set in 1964), but it also “marks the first time in station history that a temperature in the teens has been recorded in the month of September.” The previous record low for the month was 20 degrees, set on Sept. 20, 1956, and Sept. 26, 1965.
Other lows from around the region Thursday morning included:
The low temperature in Duluth was not a record. However, Duluth officially recorded a trace of snowfall Wednesday, tying the record snowfall for the date.
A freeze warning was in effect from Thursday night into this morning, for lows in the 20s across the Northland. That should be the last freeze for a while — temperatures tonight are forecast to fall only into the mid-30s to near 40.
High temperatures should be in the 60s this weekend, possibly approaching 70 by Sunday in some areas.
