There are some records I wish would never be broken. One of those would be cold temperatures, especially after this winter! Tom Hoverstad who is a scientist at the Southern Research and Outreach Center at Waseca (SROC) said Sunday morning they had an official reading of 29 degrees below zero at SROC. I was at the studio Sunday morning and the coldest temperature I saw in Faribault was 18 degrees below zero so there must have been a cold pocket at Waseca.

Tom said that was the coldest temperature ever recorded at SROC in March. Their weather records go back more than 100 years! The high temperature Sunday was 6 degrees below zero. That was only the second time in 100 years that a daily high in March was below zero. So, I am certain we are all ready for spring! However, with a little over 3 inches of precipitation lets hope all this snow melts slowly to minimize flooding!
