Rochester Breaks 100 Year Old Snow Record
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester ended up getting more snow Friday than what had been forecast.
By the time the last flake fell, the city’s official total was 2.6 inches, breaking the previous record of 1.5 inches for Oct 27 - set in 1917.
It snowed most of the day, finally ending around 10:00 PM. Most of the earlier weather forecasts had been calling for an inch or two of snow. Although most of the snow melted right away, it did stick to the ground in some areas and on trees and bushes.
Next up - the coldest air since March as Sunday morning lows are expected to dip into the lower 20s. It looks like we will have to endure below average temperatures during the first week of November with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s and lows in the 20s.
It could be very chilly for the trick-or-treaters as highs Tuesday will barely get above freezing.
