Fire weather nearly perfect storm



Minnesota Public Radio's weather blod, Paul Huttner, calls this month's pattern, "unprecedented" in known history:
So far this March our average monthly temp at MSP is 48.3 degrees. If we hold near that level through Saturday (quite possible) we could close out the month at or above 15.1 degrees above average for March. If you look at records for the 12 months of the year in the metro...the warmest month ever compared to average was January 2006, when temps soared to +15.1 degrees vs. average. If we sustain that average, March 2012 could be the warmest month ever when compared to average in the past 121 years of data for the Twin Cities.
