Heat and humidity stick around, but we should see a little relief come Monday

By  | 

There are a few showers and storms on radar that we're monitoring this afternoon, but should die out around sunset. We woke up to warm temperatures this morning at 75 here in the Twin Cities, and right now we've climbed into the lower 90s with dew points in the mid 70s so it's feeling pretty sticky outside. The Tropics are also heating up. Over the next 5 days, we have a 60% chance of development of a Low Pressure System near the Yucatan Peninsula and well as a 50% chance of development for a system off the coast of Africa. There is still some disagreement between models about where they will migrate, so we will continue to monitor these developments as we go throughout the weekend. Closer to home here, we'll stick with warm and muggy conditions overnight tonight with a low near 75. Tomorrow we'll see highs in the low to mid 90s with that heat index nearing 100 in most places. Over the next 7 days the best chance to see a little relief from this heat will be Monday when a cold front passes generating a 50% chance of rain in the late morning and early afternoon hours. This front won't do much for our daytime highs, but we'll see a dew point drop leading to lower overnight temperatures in the upper 60s.
