Christmas Day to New Year’s Eve Coldest in Twin Cities in 132 Years
The National Weather Service says that week from Christmas Day (12/25/17) to New Year's Eve (12/31/17) was the coldest for that stretch of days in the Twin Cities in 132 years. That's 1872 by the way.
The coldest temps recorded during that stretch occurred on the same morning (12/27/17) when it hit -40° in Embarrass and -41º in Cotton -- both in St. Louis County.
According to SCSU's Bob Weisman, this morning marked the 12th straight day in St. Cloud with a low temp of zero or below. The St. Cloud record for consecutive lows of zero or colder is 37 days between January 17 and February 22 in 1936.
Two and a half months until the first day of Spring.
