Extreme weather in Minnesota

Date from: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/climate/historical/acis_stn_data_monthly_table.html?sid=mspthr&sname=Twin%20Cities%20Area&sdate=por&edate=por&element=maxt&span=annual&counts=cnt_ge_90

Days with high of 90 F or above Twin Cities

Seems to be a bit of an upward trend. However, I don’t see decades like the 1930s occurring later. Minnesota is about as far away from the Oceans as one can get and could be argued to be more sensitive to a changing climate. 100 F is possible as is – 30 F.

Days with a low of 0 F or lower Twin Cities

Date from: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/climate/historical/acis_stn_data_monthly_table.html?sid=mspthr&sname=Twin%20Cities%20Area&sdate=por&edate=por&element=mint&span=season&counts=cnt_le_0

Seems to be a slight downward trend. A break around 1980.
