CHANHASSEN, Minn. — After a brutal winter, Minnesota may be starting to climb out of the deep freeze.
Temperatures across the state rose to the low to mid 20s Wednesday afternoon. But National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Borghoff says highs this time of year are supposed to be in the mid 30s.
Borghoff says no major arctic blasts are on the horizon, "so things should really start to warm up." Highs Thursday should be in the 30s statewide.
Parts of southern Minnesota did get more than 10 inches of new snow.
The deep spot is Mapleton where 10.5 inches had fallen by Wednesday morning. New Richland and Winnebago each had 10 inches while St. James had 9.5 inches of fresh snow.
