Global Warming Alert: August frost hits Minnesota and Wisconsin

Somebody call Al Gore about this….

From JS Online News Watch:

Here’s some news you probably hoped you wouldn’t hear for another four months.

The National Weather Service says areas of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin could see patchy frost this weekend. That’s right, patchy frost in August.

The weather agency says clear skies could allow temperatures to dip into the low to mid-30s late tonight into early Monday.

Meteorologist Roman Berdes says an unusual cold-air mass from Canada will bring lower temperatures, but warmer air from the central Midwest should replace it by Monday.

Berdes says these temperatures are uncommon but not unheard of. He says those areas saw temperatures in the 20s at this point in 2004.

In the Milwaukee area, today’s forecast calls for a high of 75 today and a low tonight of 54.

Can we finally put this hoax to bed?

  1. Well gang, turned the heat on this morning in Mpls, as indoor temp was 67 F. (Want at least
    72!)

    Alas, am firmly convinced that MN will have an “early winter” this year. Preparing by getting lots of wood for heater/fireplaces. Working on some caulking an sealing. Got the X country skis ready.

    Can we brink Al Gore out on Lake Minnetonka, like Hugh Hewitt, only “forget” the heated snowmobile suit, when it is -35 F?

    Heh, heh…we’d end up with a Goresical!
