A nice cold night under a full moon

The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead

FARGO - Frigid arctic air coming down from Canada broke records in eastern North Dakota on Wednesday, including one that had stood in Fargo for more than a century. Forecasters said a warm-up was in store.

Fargo broke a record that had stood for 119 years, with 31 below. The record had been 30 below set in 1889.

"High pressure overhead, fresh snow, light winds, it made for ideal conditions for a nice, cold night," meteorologist John Hoppes said.
