Hey, frost. It's June... please leave northern Minnesota alone

Two Minnesota cities had record-breaking low temps this morning.
Publish date:

We're two days into June, but the playground bully we call "Minnesota weather" doesn't seem to have gotten the memo like the rest of us.

On Sunday morning, record-low temperatures were reported in International Falls and Hibbing — 29 degrees and 28 degrees, respectively. 

According to the National Weather Service in Duluth, both of these temps beat the old records by a couple of degrees:

Meanwhile, KEYC meteorologist Mark Tarello is reporting "areas of frost" in both cities as well as two others, Embarrass and Ely (which both had sub-freezing temps Sunday morning as well; however, it's not known if these are also record breakers):

So will northern Minnesota finally see some relief in the coming days?

According to a forecast from Weather Underground, Hibbing can expect a low of 51 degrees over the next couple of days, with highs in the 70s (though rain and thunderstorms are also in the cards).

The site says International Falls can expect lows in the 40s and 50s and highs in the 70s Monday and Tuesday as well. 

As unfair as this weather may be this late into spring, perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised where International Falls is concerned, given its nickname is "the icebox of the nation."
