An Oddly Warm January!
Monday, January 16th, 2012
|AJ didn’t need much winter gear earlier in January|
The temperature has finally taken a dive for the colder, but this January started out as one of the warmest weather. We have this photo of AJ, one of our residents, who was found taking advantage of the nice temperatures and not wearing much weather gear to stay warm! Who would have thought we would have this amazing weather in January?
The MN Climate Working Group and National Weather Service released this statement:
“There has never been a 60 degree temperature recorded during the first week of January in Minnesota’s modern climate record. The warmest temperature ever recorded in Minnesota during the first week of January is 59 degrees, occurring on January 7, 2003 in Amboy, MN. The warmest temperature ever recorded in Minnesota on January 5 is 57 degrees, recorded at Crookston in 1902. Reaching 60 degrees ANY time ANYWHERE in January is quite rare, occurring in only 10 years of the 120 year modern record. The all-time record high temperature for any day in January is 69 degrees, occurring January 24, 1981 in Montevideo.”
