MINNEAPOLIS - After a beautiful Wednesday with day time highs reaching into the mid 80s and dew points in the 50s. We will start to climb up the thermometer into the upper 80s for the last full official day of spring and the first weekend of summer. Dew points will also rise into the 60s making it feel like summer too!
A few storms are possible early Thursday but the better chance will be late in the day and into the overnight hours. There is a slight chance of severe weather on Thursday and Friday. Right now the best shot looks like late Thursday night into the overnight hours for a few strong storms. Expect highs in the mid 80s Thursday and you'll notice more muggy air around for the rest of the weekend. By Friday, we're looking at highs near 90 and continuing into early next week. Thunderstorms are possible late Friday and on/off through the weekend between hot, humid conditions & sunshine during the daylight hours.
