GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — We have some early morning thunderstorms that could mess up the commute. Expect scattered showers and storms with some downpours and lightning/thunder through 7-8 am for most of the metro. We'll then clear out by midday with some sun and temps warming back up into the low 80s with humid and windy conditions. Winds will pick up from the southwest at 15-20 mph. Late in the afternoon/evening we could see some isolated storms pop up again.

Expect calmer and quieter conditions tonight into tomorrow and most of Friday. We'll see partly cloudy skies for your Thursday with highs back around 80. Friday could bring a storm late in the day mostly dry and warm.

The next best chance of storms after today will be Saturday. Cooler, breezy and DRY conditions settle in for Sunday. Highs are still in the 70s early next week as Autumn begins officially at 2:50 AM Monday.
