We have been talking A LOT about winter and weather around here because there has been so much to talk about in that department. Cold snaps! Arctic air! Record-breaking temperatures!

It looks like we are going to start seeing things calm down a bit as temperatures return to where they should be this time of the year. It just wouldn't be the Northland if we didn't break some type of record first.

WDIO Meteorologist Brandon Weathers shared yet another exciting statistic on his Facebook page Wednesday (February 17) that you really need to see to believe! According to his report, we have seen nearly ten days of twenty-below temperatures in the Duluth area.

Not only have we seen that, but we have even seen a day below the thirty-below mark. We lived it so we already knew this but to see it in written form sure is something. Brrrr!

It could be worse: his report shows that spots like International Falls and Hibbing had several more days in those same ranges. Take a look at his report below:

Like I mentioned, things are going to start to warm up as we head into the second half of the month. The Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service is forecasting a big warm-up over the next two weeks.

This will probably feel like a heat wave. WDIO Meteorologist Brandon Weathers shared another interesting statistic this week: the first half of February 2021 was the coldest on record for Duluth.

I am sure I speak for all of us when I say we can't wait for spring! Meteorologists at the Weather Channel are predicting a nice, warm and early one for us. I would say we have earned it!
