Record Cold Hits the Brainerd Lakes

Looks like we are setting over-night low records around the Brainerd Lakes Area this morning. The record low for Brainerd set back in 1956 of 17 below was easily eclipsed this morning when the mercury plunged to 25 below. Longville was coldest in the state and lower 48 states at 33 below.
All this is on top of the snow from late winter storm that dropped around a half foot of snow Tuesday and promoted the radiational cooling that resulted in the drastic temperatures.
Relief is on the way. Meteorologist Tony Schumacher says temperatures are expected to crack into the 40's this weekend.
