The community of Brimson, Minnesota, had the honor of being the coldest place in the United States Thursday morning.
The National Weather Service Duluth said the a.m. low of 30 degrees there was lower than temps anywhere else in the country.
OK, with one tiny exception: 7,200 feet up Mt. Denali in Alaska, it was 25 degrees. But Brimson was colder than everywhere else with measured temperatures in the U.S.
Brimson is an unincorporated community in St. Louis County, about 20 miles northwest of Two Harbors.
The Thursday morning hours were quite cool for many Minnesotans, and downright frosty in much of the northland.
