Good morning!

A beautiful summer pattern settled over Minnesota on Wednesday and it will remain over the state for the rest of the week.

Sunshine will mix with clouds today and temperatures will rise into the lower 80’s and the humidity will remain in check.

The only issue some of you may have today with respect to the weather is the chance of an isolated afternoon thunderstorm. The chances for rain are higher the farther south you go away from the metro. But there is the chance of a rogue storm even in the metro area.

Dew points (measure of moisture in the air) will remain in the 50’s and lower 60’s and this means the air will be comfortable today and tomorrow.

Even on Saturday when the temperature flirts with 90 degrees for the 19th time this summer, the dew points will not rise very much.

Sunday is looking mostly dry for a good part of the day but as the day moves along clouds will increase from the west and late in the afternoon and/or evening showers and a few thunderstorms will develop.

An even bigger change in the air moves our way to start next week with afternoon high temperatures on Monday and Tuesday likely remaining in the pleasant 70’s.

Have a great day!
