UNDATED – The heat wave baking Minnesota and Wisconsin has led to record-breaking temperatures across both states and thunderstorm warnings in the Boundary Waters area.

Temperatures hit 101 in Minneapolis on Wednesday, breaking the old record of 100 set in 1949. And St. Cloud got up to 97, one degree higher than the record set in 1988.

Wednesday’s high of 97 was our fifth day in a row of 90-degree weather.  We’ve had temps at 88 degrees or better every day for eight days — going back to last Wednesday.
