Should come as no surprise that the record period from November 1 through May 9 was the 10th coolest on record. Sure hasn't felt like spring. Hang in there, warmer weather is on the way.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. Slightly warmer. H: 67 Wind: W 5
Saturday Night: Clear. L: 48 Wind: SW 5-10
Sunday: Sunny, delightful. H: 71 L: 57 Wind: SW 10
Monday: Thunderstorms. H: 64 L: 53 Wind: SE 10

Wednesday: Gradual clearing. H: 75 L: 55 Wind: NW 5-10
From November 1 - May 9 may have been the 10th coldest of record but as the @NWSTwinCities points out just two years prior we experienced the warmest such period on record. The difference all comes with opposite larger scale weather patterns.
The cooler weather has slowed the evaporation process so many of our trails are still tacky...but good. "It has been so rainy in some parts of the state that a few observers have already reported well over a full May's worth of rain, including Floodwood with 4.27 inches and Hibbing with 4.01 inches." according to MN State Climatologist, Mark Seeley.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
