(KNSI) - As temperatures slowly warm up, when can we expect the mercury to reach 50 degrees for the first time this year?
The National Weather Service says the St. Cloud area has already passed the average date of the first 50 degree temperature, which is March 5.
The latest first 50 degree temp was in 2013, when we didn't touch 50 until April 26.
The earliest was on January 5, 2012.
The last time people in the St. Cloud area experienced 50 degrees was last December 4th.
It doesn't look like we'll reach that 50 degree benchmark any time soon.
Forecasters expect Wednesday to be sunny with a high of 41.
Thursday we slip back down to 36 for the high.
Friday's high will be 37.
The high temps over the weekend are forecast to be in the low 40s.
