GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Extreme heat and humidity this Friday will create our hottest conditions yet this year, and may launch severe storms for some this evening. 

Look for sun and highs in the low to mid 90s this afternoon, but dew points will be in the mid to upper 70s which will create a heat index in the 104 to 107 degree range in the Twin Cities. 

An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect through the day. 

We'll see thunderstorms develop late this afternoon into the evening across central Minnesota and into western Wisconsin. Some of those storms could be severe with tornadoes, hail and high winds. The Storm Prediction Center has east central Minnesota into Wisconsin under a MODERATE risk for severe storms.

Temps will maybe only muster 80 degrees tomorrow with lots of clouds and occasional showers. Sunday should see the sun return and a BIG drop in humidity. Highs will only be in the upper 70s.

Next week looks dry, quiet and comfortable. By the end of the week things could be heating up again, however. 


We’re excited to share with you that we've launched an all-new and improved mobile app:
