Twin Cities sets another temperature record Thursday
Make it two in a row.
After a record-setting 88-degree day on Wednesday, the Twin Cities metro area set another record Thursday.
5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Meteorologist Ken Barlow said if the Twin Cities hits 90 degrees it would be a record high for the day and the earliest 90-degree day in April since record-keeping began in 1872.
While that didn’t happen, temperatures did reach 87 degrees, which still tops the previous record for April 13, which was 84.
This comes after record-breaking temperatures on Wednesday, which means most of the snow in the metro area has melted. As the snow melts, cities are preparing for flooding.
Barlow expects storms this weekend beginning on Friday night with likely non-severe thunderstorms. Temperatures this weekend will dip into the 40s with cold winds and intermittent rain.
There is a chance of some flurries, which Barlow says won’t stay on the ground.
