Record temps not temporary
Another warm-weather record was set Sunday as Brainerd reached a high of 76 degrees, surpassing the previous record that stood for 94 years.
Until Sunday, Brainerd’s record high temperature topped out at 72 degrees in 1918.
On the flip side, the record low for this date is 23 below zero, set in 1939. The normal high this time of year is 39 degrees.
How different could things be? On March 18, 1997, there was a record snow depth of 30 inches.
