Is there any big warm-up on the horizon? Well, I hate to tell you, not at this stage. Most of the month of December will continue to see cold and snow. Stay safe and think warm thoughts! Weather history: On this date in 1933, records show that a "severe ice storm hit southern and central Minnesota." Weather fact: An ice storm is a "type of winter storm character- ized by freezing rain, also known as a glaze event or, in some parts of the United States, as a silver thaw." An ice storm results in the accu- mulation of at least 0.25-inch of ice on exposed surfaces. MN AT A GLANCE: Moorhead Low -6 High 0 Duluth Low 4 High 10 Central Minn.
