Depending on where you are reading this from, today is either much colder than yesterday, or very similar to what you recorded yesterday.  Yesterday was one of many days in our region when 50 miles, or even less, made a huge difference in the type of day you experienced.  Yesterday for example, the southern Red River Valley had temperature reach or exceed 70 degrees, whereas 50 miles away it was nearly 20 degrees colder.   If you take the range that was experienced on a state wide perspective, then that range was from the lower 70s to the upper 30s at one point yesterday afternoon.  For a range of 35 degrees at one point.  Today, the cold air will be in place for all, but warmer temperatures will return later this week.
