Springtime Tree


ABERDEEN, S.D. – (DRG News) The National Weather Service says this month has brought a slew of records to some communities in the state.  The Weather Service office in Aberdeen, which mans northeastern and central parts of the state, says Pierre so far has set five new records, reaching 74 on the 10th, 82 on the 13th, 86 on the 16th, 80 on St. Patrick’s Day and 88 on the 18th.   That temperature of 88 on the 18th broke the all-time March high temp record of 87 set on March 27 of 1988.  In Mobridge, record highs were reached in a three-day period-starting March 16.  As for the last few days of the month, Tuesday and Wednesday should bring cooler temperatures, but by the end of the week, temps could again be above average.  Forecasters say however it’s too early to tell if the highs will be close to record setting as March comes to a close.
