More than 90 record-high temperatures were recorded in the Midwest and Great Lakes yesterday.
And perhaps an even better record came for the residents of Minneapolis-St. Paul in Minnesota - for only the third time in recorded history there was no snow measured during the month of March. (Records date back to 1859).
Rochester, Minnesota, shattered its old record high of 71 degrees when the temperature soared to 83 degrees yesterday. Chicago also recorded a record high temperature for April 1 of 83.
Other record high temperatures recorded:
Cleveland, Ohio – 83
Toledo, Ohio – 80
Detroit, Michigan – 80
Grand Rapids, Michigan – 82
Indianapolis, Indiana – 82
Milwaukee, Wisconsin – 82
Green Bay, Wisconsin – 75
Duluth, Minnesota – 62
The good weather may not last for everyone though. A cold front is moving across the region today that should bring an end to the record high temperatures across the region.
