Area hits 42 Saturday with wind speeds to match
January left the region with a bang Saturday. The high temperature of 42 in Park Rapids nearly matched the wind speeds recorded five hours later at 45 mph.
The 42 degree reading fell two degrees short of a record 44 degrees, said National Weather Service meteorologist Brad Hopkins, but he was unable to pinpoint the year that record was set. Fargo's 44 degrees on Saturday did break a previous record.
