We had a beautiful Memorial Weekend with plenty of sunshine. The temperature was in the 80’s and the water temperature heated up quickly into the 60’s. I haven’t been swimming on Memorial Weekend except for maybe one other time and I remember the water was freezing. This time it was a comfortable temperature and perfect for cooling off.
According to the Duluth News Tribune…
The Duluth airport reported a high temperature of 92 degrees — shattering the previous record high for May 26 of 85 degrees, set in 1978 and again in 2014, the National Weather Service reported.
There was relief near Lake Superior, with temperatures at the Duluth harbor only in the mid-50s as of mid-afternoon Saturday; the Grand Marais harbor stayed in the 40s much of the day.
The average high for Duluth at this time of year is about 65 degrees.
