April 21, 2018 08:02 PM

It's hard to believe a week ago, Minnesotans were in the middle of an historic blizzard; especially since it hit 60 degrees Saturday.

KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas said the last time the state felt 60-degree weather was 145 days ago on Nov. 27, 2017.

On average, the state sees its first 60-degree day on March 29, and the latest 60-degree day was on April 29, 1874. 

While Minnesotans are definitely soaking in the sunshine, some might be sniffling a little more.

Yuhas said allergen levels will be high Sunday through Wednesday, with Monday tracking to be the most intense day. The main allergens are Elm and Poplar trees. 

Right now, it's looking like next Saturday will be 70 degrees.
