Weather Forecast


Here comes the sun


Spring appears to have sprung — for now at least.

After an unseasonably warm winter — with the exception of the recent snowstorm — Minnesotans can look forward to more sunshine and warmth in the coming week. Temperatures climbed up to 59 Sunday afternoon in Brainerd, breaking the record high of 56 set in 1997, and the National Weather Service (NWS) in Duluth said it’s only going to get warmer.
