Weather Talk: ND, Minn. saw amazing temperature extremes last week

Last week brought some strong temperatures boundaries to the region. On May 18, a strong cold front was producing some amazing temperature extremes.

Last week brought some strong temperatures boundaries to the region. On May 18, a strong cold front was producing some amazing temperature extremes.

At one point that afternoon, Langdon, N.D., was reporting a temperature of 46 degrees behind the front and in Wheaton, Minn., where the front had not yet passed, it was 88 degrees. Both cities are in our TV coverage area.

That same front on May 19 surged north as a warm front, and by early evening Wheaton had soared to 95 degrees, whereas Fargo-Moorhead only managed a high of 69 degrees and Langdon remained in the upper 50s.

But the temperature range that day was much more pronounced in Minnesota. Granite Falls hit 100 degrees at 4 p.m. At the same time, it was only 34 degrees in Grand Marais - a difference of 66 degrees. Ranges of that magnitude in Minnesota are quite rare.
