Temperatures soared into the 60s on Friday in much of the Northland for the first time in seemingly eons, a welcome change in an uncommonly cool spring.
Duluth just barely hit 60 degrees at 3:59 p.m. at Duluth International Airport. The high on Park Point, near the cold waters of Lake Superior, was only 39 degrees.
Thermometers climbed to 70 degrees in the Twin Cities, 65 in Hayward, Aitkin and Moose Lake and 64 in Ashland. Just about everyone in the Northland should see temperatures in the 60s today, with 70s not out of the question. Sunday and Monday are expected to be in the 60s as well, according to the National Weather Service in Duluth.
If it seems like forever since the last 60-degree days, well, almost. That was Oct. 16, 2012, in Duluth.
This isn’t the latest that Duluth has hit 60. That happened in 1950 when the first 60-degree reading didn’t come until May 11.
