If it seems warm (like really, extra warm), you're onto something.
This Black Friday marked temperature records in at least two areas of Minnesota.
Early Friday, the Twin Cities hit 50 degrees for the first time this month, according to measurements at the international airport.
Then later in the day, temps reached 60 degrees.
After reaching 50 °F for the first time this November earlier in the morning, we've managed to briefly hit 60 °F at MSP! This sets a new record high for the date, breaking the previous record of 59 °F in 1990 & 2011. #mnwx— NWS Twin Cities (@NWSTwinCities) November 24, 2017
St. Cloud set a record high for the day, too.
St. Cloud also sets a new record high today! 57 °F breaks the old record high of 56 °F, set in 1990 #mnwx— NWS Twin Cities (@NWSTwinCities) November 24, 2017
The lack of snow cover in southern and central Minnesota is part of why temperatures were able to climb so high, MPR News meteorologist Ron Trenda reported Friday morning.
However, the northeast part of the state isn't so balmy. Rain is in the forecast for later Friday, and snowflakes could mix into the rainfall.
