7 Day Forecast
We all got a muggy slap in the face this morning. Dew points are the measure of the moisture in the air, the higher they are the more moisture there is. When the dew points get up into the 60s, it starts to feel a little sticky, but when they climb into the upper 60s to around 70, like they have today, it’s down right muggy. That same moisture in the air helps to create instability in the atmosphere, which should lead to a few thunderstorms late this afternoon through this evening. Right now it looks as though there might be a few strong thunderstorms, but most should stay just below severe limits. We have a Marginal Risk of severe weather here in the Twin Cities, but there’s a Slight Risk of severe weather in western and northwestern parts of the state.
The Memorial Day Weekend still looks hot. After the thunderstorms roll through later tonight, temperatures will continue to rise Friday, with highs reaching the upper 80s to around 90. Sunday and Monday, thermometers all over Minnesota should touch the low 90s, with dew points in the upper 60s to low 70s! That’s still very muggy. After the weekend is over, a weak cool front should be the focus for more showers and thunderstorms, especially Tuesday night and Wednesday. Keep the air conditioners and the fans running.
The winds should be southerly at 10-15 mph tonight and southwesterly at 5-10 mph on Friday.
