The previous record of 84 degrees set on May 16, 1962.  National Weather Service records indicate the temperature at Duluth International Airport tied the old record at 11:55 a.m., then rose to 86 by 12:55 p.m. and to 88 by 1:55.  The temperature fell back to 84 by 2:55.

The Weather Service said Hibbing also set a new record high of 85, breaking the old record of 83 set in 1972.

However, it looks like the warm weather won't last after a roller-coaster week of temperatures.  The Duluth Airport reached 81 on Monday but only 59 on Tuesday, and after Wednesday's record warmth, cooler temperatures are again expected Thursday.
