Temps plummet below freezing, into the mid-20s in parts of Minnesota

Thanks, Canada.

People in northern Minnesota woke up Thursday morning to frost on the ground and temperature readings cold enough to put a layer of thick frost on the windows of vehicles parked outside. 

The plummeting temperature saw overnight lows below freezing, with the coldest reading of 24 degrees being recorded in Robinson, a small town located about 100 miles north of Duluth in St. Louis County. 

According to the National Weather Service in Duluth, the low of 28 degrees in International Falls set the record for this date, shattering it, in fact, by three degrees. Hibbing also shattered its record of 33 by falling all the way to 29 degrees. 

Temps will rebound into the 60s up north with overnight lows more seasonable, dropping into the 40s and 50s, the next few nights. 

The weather will be pretty much perfect in the Twin Cities through the weekend with daily highs in the low 70s and no rain in the forecast until Sunday night or Monday.
