It's official – this year will go down in history as the latest freeze in the Twin Cities

It's been 208 days since we saw temps hit freezing.

The Twin Cities has set another weather record.

After record-setting warmth over the weekend, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has yet to dip to 32 degrees, breaking the record for latest freeze that was set Nov. 7, 1900, the Weather Channel says. (Although the mercury in some Twin Cities communities has dropped below freezing this fall.)

Sunday marked the 208th consecutive day that temperatures stayed above 32 degrees at MSP Airport, according to the National Weather Service.

And that record will likely be shattered, because the forecast shows above-average temperatures through the work week – and maybe longer.

A look at the forecast

Low temperatures Sunday into Monday hung out around 50 degrees for the Twin Cities, according to the National Weather Service, with highs Monday expected to climb into the 60-65 degree range. (That's about 15 degrees above normal for this time of year.)

The coolest day over the next week is expected to be Saturday, when low temperatures in the Twin Cities will dip into the 40s, with the weather service saying there's doubt that the metro will see its first freeze Friday night, adding the "record-long growing season may continue into next weekend."
