It was an unfortunate site in northern Minnesota this morning. Reports from an International Falls resident say that they say snow flying this morning. And for the record, it was in the 80s yesterday in the International Falls area. This morning they woke up to temperatures in the 30s.

We're over here complaining about it being in the 50s and 60s the rest of this week and into Memorial Day weekend. Yeah, it stinks with this weekend being the unofficial start to summer, but at least it didn't snow! Gotta look on the bright side of things.

The National Weather Service out of Duluth Tweeted about the white stuff falling from the sky this morning. The Tweet said that their observer in International Falls reported that snow was falling for about 10 minutes at around 7 AM this morning. It left a trace amount of snow on the ground the day after they hit 85 degrees. I can't imagine that the snow stuck around on the ground for very long since it was so warm yesterday, but heading into work with a dusting covering your yard would be a pretty sad sight.

Snow in May after a day in the 80s, yeah that's pretty bad, but what about snow in June? Or August? You can read that whole story HERE, but it's happened! On June 4th, 1935 in Mizpah in Koochiching Counties, 1.5 inches of snow fell. And on August 31, 1949 trace amounts of snow fell at the Duluth International Airport. These numbers and dates are according to the Minnesota DNR.
