December 7, 2023

We likely won’t be setting any weather records, but the forecast for this week is still remarkable.

“It’s going to be much warmer than normal,” said Tom Hoverstad, scientist with the University of Minnesota Southern Research and Outreach Center in Waseca. “To set records for this time of year, we’d have to be in the 60s. I don’t know if we’ll get that warm.”
