Mark Meteorologist Come, Above average temps Sunday Weather Column: The state of Minnesota enjoyed a nice week- end for this time of the year. Temperatures were above aver- age for much of greater Minnesota on Sunday. Most of the area expe- rienced high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Some of the warmest air was found across southern Minnesota and parts of eastern Minnesota on Sunday. Glencoe, Faribault, and Mankato all hit 84 degrees E Some light rain showers moved across Minnesota late Sunday night into mainly early Monday. Rainfall amounts were generally light. High pressure pushed back into the area by Monday afternoon and Tuesday. Temperatures climbed into the 70s and lower 80s with lots of sunshine by the afternoon. A change will come our way again by Wednesday, We have no quotas to meet. We only want to meet you! BANK KIMBALL ST.

Weather history: On this date in 2005 records show that "an unusually intense late sea- son severe weather event affects parts of central Minnesota and west central Wisconsin during the late afternoon and evening hours." There were reports of "baseball-sized hail, damaging thunderstorm winds, and torna- does result from several supercell thunderstorms." The NWS said that the "most widespread dam- age occurred across the northern and eastern portions of the Twin Cities." Three tornadoes moved across "parts of Anoka and north- ern Hennepin counties, including an F2 tornado!" Weather fact: A rainbow is in fact a full circle of light. However, due to most people "viewing a rainbow on the ground we only see a semi-circle or arc of the rainbow." MN AT A GLANCE: Moorhead Low 56 High 65 Duluth Low 54 High 67 Central Minn.
