With all of the rain and flooding we've had these past couple of weeks, Wednesday finally felt like the first day of summer.
In Canal Park, tourists and locals enjoyed the sunshine before the Fourth of July weekend.
"I'm used to being up here in the winter where it's shorts weather at zero degrees, so this is awesome," said Josh Lemieux. "You have to enjoy the weather while we have it."
It's rained 11 of past 12 days and June 16th was the last time Duluth has see temperatures above 70 degrees like on Wednesday when the high was 71 degrees.
