The previous record was held by May 31, 1934 when the temp rose to 105 degrees. 

It's also a record high for May 28 in the Twin Cities and the all-time record on Memorial Day, breaking the old record of 98 degrees on May 30, 1934. 

According to the National Weather Service, the last time it reached 100 in the Twin Cities was July 6, 2012, when it was 102 degrees.
