It was another weekend of November warmth as record highs were broken in the Midwest. The high temperature in Fargo, ND shattered a 129 year old record! A record high was also set in Grand Forks, ND, 70 miles to the north. Highs this time of year are typically in the 40s over the Red River Valley of the North.

Along with North Dakota, several record highs fell in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Commonly called the “Ice Box of the Nation”, International Falls felt temperatures far from freezing with highs in the 70s. That smashed the previous record high temperature by six degrees. Highs in the low 70s are more typical in early September.
Temps were in record territory today, with 70s observed across much of the west half. Normal highs for 11/6 are 41-46F across the U.P. pic.twitter.com/UmmM5YTjBa
