This is the warmest reading at MSP since December 1st when we hit 47 degrees. It also marks the first time in just over 3 months we have hit 40 in the metro.

The mild air mass and strong March sun has boosted temps to 40 in many Minnesota locations today. And now for some really good news, the weather winning streak should continue all week long. We have a shot at 40 or better right through the upcoming weekend.
