We’ve been cold for the past several weeks and we finally broke a record this morning in Rochester. The all-time record low-temperature was broken this morning when temperatures at KRST dropped to 0°. This beat the previous daily low-temperature record set back in 1991.
More record-breaking temperatures could be on the way for early next week. Before the arctic air makes another return Monday, temperatures warm near 40° on Saturday with partly cloudy skies during the early afternoon. Clouds begin to build into the forecast for the evening and some patchy drizzle/flurries will be possible overnight.
As we head towards next week the cold weather will be the major story weather-wise. Highs on Monday and Tuesday will be in the middle and upper teens with overnight lows approaching 0° for many communities. We don’t get much relief from the cold weather later in the week either. Highs will be in the middle and upper 20s through Friday next week.
