Warm memories

November 2, 2012

  Our incredible warm streak has ended. October was 1.4 degrees cooler than normal in the Twin Cities. October probably seemed extra chilly because we had seen 16 consecutive warmer-than-normal months from June 2011 through September 2012. Included in that toasty stretch were the following:

  • March 2012 was the warmest March in Twin Cities history
  • March through May 2012 was the warmest meteorological spring in Twin Cities history
  • July 2012 was the second warmest July in Twin Cities history
  • June through August 2012 was the third warmest meteorological summer in Twin Cities history

  Additional notes about our impressive stretch of warmth are posted on the Twin Cities NWS site (NWS) and on the Minnesota State Climatology Office site (MNClimate).

  Looking ahead, the November outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service doesn’t show a strong tendency toward either warmth or wintry chill:

  The Twin Cities area has equal chances of above or below normal temperatures, with a slight tendency toward above normal temperatures over western Minnesota. I’d be happy with a few mild days before the snow flies…I haven’t finished the raking yet.
