The weather in Minnesota never leaves us lacking for something to talk about. The conversation at the dinner table, the water cooler at work and even in the elevator with strangers always seems to turn to what’s going on outside. Bein
A warm front will lift north across the state this (Friday) afternoon. As a result, showers and thunderstorms will develop this evening. Widespread .75 to 1 1/2 inches of rain will be possible. Some areas could see 1 1/2 to two inches of rain tonight. A second round of showers and thunderstorms is expected tomorrow (Saturday) night. At this time another 1/2 inch to one inch of rain will be possible.
Widespread thunderstorms are possible tonight (Friday) as a warm front lifts into the area. Some of these storms could produce heavy rainfall and a few could be severe. The heat index will climb into the 96 to 100 degree range in some parts of the state.
Relief from the hot, sticky weather isn't expected anytime soon. The dew point in the "Lutefisk Capital" of Madison was 86 Sunday night - a mark not seen for a dozen years. Here in St. Cloud we had dew points of at least 82 on Sunday night.
The heat and mugginess continues across Minnesota. Excessive heat warnings continue through Wednesday with hot days and warm nights. And that brings the risk of strong to severe thunderstorms, as well, especially this afternoon and tonight.
The National Weather Service says there's a chance of showers and storms over Central Minnesota tonight. There's an even greater risk of storms Sunday night -- and some of those storms could be severe.
