Past Valentine's Day Weather
February 14, 2012, 5:29 PM
While many locations were above average on Tuesday, this wasn't the hottest Valentine's Days.
In years past, temperatures rose to the upper 50s to the lower 70s. The warmest reading is from Pierre with 72 degrees compared to Watertown's warmest Valentine Day at 58.
Valentine's can also be cold hearted with record lows falling to the 20s and 30s below zero. Aberdeen's coldest Valentine Day was 30 below while Sioux Falls has fallen to 28 below.
Let's not forget the snow either. Just two years ago, white was the theme instead of red. Sioux Falls had its deepest snow on Valentine's Day with 19 inches on the ground. Of course, that's not the case this year.
