Weekend cold breaks records across the Dakotas

       BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ The latest cold snap of the winter shattered records around the Dakotas over the weekend, but a warm-up appears to be in store.

In North Dakota, Grand Forks, Fargo, Jamestown, Minot, Dickinson and Bismarck all set records Saturday or Sunday for record low high temperatures for the date. National Weather Service reports show that the temperature didn’t rise above zero in any of the cities, and in Minot and Grand Forks it didn’t get any warmer than minus 11 on Saturday.

In South Dakota, Sioux Falls, Rapid City and Aberdeen set similar records over the weekend.

Wind chills early Monday in the two states were in the minus teens and 20s, but the forecast called for lows above zero and high temperatures in the teens, 20s and 30s by midweek.
