Sven Sundgaard: What is the weather like in Minnesota in December?

Happy meteorological winter! Boy did it start in full force this week. Let’s take a look back at fall and see how the numbers have evolved.

First, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it was a mild autumn. Temperatures averaged nearly 2 degrees above normal (1.9 degrees F), which might not sound like much, but the standard deviation for the average fall temperature is only 2.8 degrees F. It wasn’t mild enough to bother us making the top 10 or 20 but puts us in the top 27% of our records.
