It may still be relatively early in the year but the National Weather Service of Dululth is looking ahead.

The National Weather Service of Duluth released their outlook for temperatures for the rest of the month in the area. They shared this via tweet on Friday (March 19).

According to their post, 2021 has been a bit unusual in terms of temperature in the Duluth area. They state that we haven't seen normal temperatures for each time of year. We have either seen above normal temperatures, like in the beginning of the year, or below average, like during our cold snap in February.
