Minnesota's famed winter isn't what it used to be

Updated : March 21, 2019 10:02 AM IST

Since 1970, Minnesota's winters have been warming at a rate of more than 1 degree a decade. The change is noticeable to many who enjoy outdoor winter activities, allowing fewer opportunities for cross-country ski races, snowmobiling, dog sledging, ice fishing and outdoor skating.
