MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - It’s October, but summer is having a last hurrah in Minnesota, with record-breaking temperatures in some parts of the state.

Temperatures on Sunday soared into the 90s in parts of Minnesota as southern winds pushed in warm air.

The National Weather Service says record high temperatures were recorded Sunday in Minneapolis and St. Cloud at 85 and 83 degrees, respectively, beating previous records set in 1930.

In west-central Minnesota, Wheaton and Moorhead hit 97, while Appleton, Montevideo and Granite Falls reached at least 93 degrees. Bemidji and Orr in northern Minnesota touched 90, and International Falls — the self-proclaimed Nation’s Icebox — was at 87.

But the summer-like weather is about to end, with highs in Minnesota on Monday ranging from the upper 40s to low 60s.

The average high for Oct. 11 is 61.
