Minnesota, USA: The Twin Cities reached a RECORD HIGH of 81 degrees on Monday and it was still 70 degrees in Minneapolis at 9 p.m. - anything but typical weather for March 26. The former record high for March 26 in the Twin Cities was 74 degrees, set in 1991. It was the second consecutive day that the temperature was over 70. A reading of 70 degrees or higher in March in the Twin Cities is not unheard of, but two consecutive days of 70 degrees-plus is very rare. It has not happened since 1986, when temperatures went above 70 on March 29 and 30. There are 65 days left in the snow season and cold snaps are still possible.
