March heat wave continues to shatter records

It's crazy. But it keeps happening. Insanely warm March weather broke records again this weekend. The Twin Cities had the earliest-ever 80-degree reading. Even the nation's icebox - International Falls - turned in a steamy 77 degrees, breaking the previous record for the date by 22 degrees. Duluth, Fargo, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Winona all set records, as well. Some much needed rain is expected late Sunday through Wednesday, with temperatures cooling down in the 60s for most of the work week.
