Pleasant weather tomorrow and Thursday, then another heat wave throughout holiday weekend

TUESDAY August 29TH 2023 – Wren Clair KSTP Evening Meteorologist Wren Clair

Good evening! Tomorrow and Thursday will be pleasant days to visit the Minnesota State Fair. By Friday, we’re back to heat and higher humidity. Right now, it looks like another heat wave is likely throughout the entirety of the Labor Day weekend, and even into Tuesday. Our high temperatures will be near record highs on Friday and Saturday, with temperatures especially likely to break records Sunday and Labor Day.

Without any significant widespread rainfall in this current seven-day forecast, drought it likely to worsen across the region. Temperatures look to cool down a bit by the middle of next week. However, above average temperatures will still look to hold even by the middle of next week towards the weekend.
