Record High Set in Twin Cities; Temps to Fall Overnight

September 25, 2017 12:34 AM

The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport registered a record-high 90 degrees on Sunday, marking the second-consecutive record high day and the third of more than 90 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities.

Sunday's high broke the previous record of 89 set in 1935.

But they wouldn't stay that way. Temps fell into the low 70s before midnight and were expected to continue into the low 60s by sunrise, after which they won't get much higher on Monday.

Meanwhile, the weather service on Sunday afternoon had issued and allowed to expire a tornado warning for portions of southeastern Pope and west-central Stearns counties in central Minnesota, as well as a severe thunderstorm warning for portions of Itasca, Aitkin, Cass and Crow Wing counties.

 

KSTP Meteorologist Sam Ryan says there's a 70 percent chance of scattered showers or thunderstorms for the Twin Cities Sunday evening as skies remain cloudy and the temperature begins a descent into the 60s. Heavy rainfall is likely starting later Sunday and into the overnight hours Monday.

For Monday, the heaviest rain looks to fall during the morning hours and could affect the commute. By the evening drive, however, the risk for rain showers will be diminished, according to KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas.
