As cold as it's been in Minnesota, no records have fallen.
    
The Minneapolis record that forecasters had considered the most threatened was for the coldest high temperature for this date, which was 14 degrees below zero in 1909.
    
But Shawn DeVinny, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, says the temperature warmed up to 12 below zero as of 3 p.m. He says the Twin Cities didn't break the record low either.
    
The record low for Jan. 6 in Minneapolis was 27 below in 1887 and 1912. But the mercury bottomed out around 23 below as of 6 a.m. at the airport.
