Winter's cold returns
Winter is here.
While Minnesotans know to expect snow, ice and frigid temperatures in December, the shift from a relatively warm November was substantial.
November brought almost no snowfall and temperatures were regularly above freezing. And those warm temperatures continued for a few days into the last month of 2013.
But after a couple highs in the mid-30s, temperatures quickly dropped in December to single digits, with a low of minus 2 degrees by Dec. 5.
