Twin Cities high of 55° today breaks previous record by a landslide

Here’s your Wednesday evening forecast for January 31, 2024 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

The Twin Cities has a new record high of 55° for January 31st. The previous record high was 46° set in 1995 and tied in 2009. Marshall even saw a high of 60° today. Even most of northern Minnesota had temperatures topping off in the low-50s. Tonight well have mainly clear skies, with a few additional clouds late overnight.

A Dense Fog Advisory is in place for most of central and southern Minnesota into western Wisconsin tonight through Thursday morning at 9 am. The Thursday morning commute could be slower due to the fog, and some freezing fog could make for slick spots as well.

With mostly to partly sunny skies and highs in the upper-40s, your Thursday forecast is cooler than today but well above average. The forecast this Friday into the weekend is looking less cloudy than it did earlier in the week. With partly sunny skies in place, temperatures are also likely to be a few degrees higher this Friday into the weekend. Temperatures stay well above average this weekend into next week, our next chance for precipitation returns Wednesday late in the day. Right now, that looks to be rain, and not snow.

Have a wonderful night!
