Heat and humidity on the rise, few chances for storms

Here’s your Monday evening forecast for July 31, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Good evening! After a beautiful start to the workweek, some changes are on the way. Tonight features another night of comfortable sleeping weather with lows in the mid-60s. Isolated showers and t’storms are possible overnight across far west-northwestern Minnesota. A few strong to severe storms are possible across northwestern Minnesota Tuesday afternoon and evening as a warm tracks eastward from North Dakota. Isolated shower and t’storms are possible for the metro Tuesday evening, but this is only a slight chance.

Temperatures are back in the upper-80s tomorrow, and low 90s Wednesday and Thursday. Count on muggier conditions as well.

The best chances for midweek storms in the metro would be Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. Isolated severe storms with large hail, damaging winds, and locally heavy rain, are possible across especially central Minnesota into western Wisconsin. Right now the best shot rain and storms looks to be Friday night into Saturday.

Have a wonderful night!
