Hot and humid tonight and tomorrow, with spotty t’storms

Here’s your Wednesday evening forecast for August 2, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Scattered storms are now (5:40 PM) starting to develop in central and northeastern Minnesota into west-central Wisconsin along a weak frontal boundary. Isolated strong to severe storms are possible now through sunset. Damaging winds and about one inch hail are the main threats with tonight’s storms. Storm chances are more likely along and north of I-94.

It’s another warm and humid forecast overnight for most of Minnesota. Highs tomorrow are back in the low-90s for the metro. A cold front tracking southwards in from Canada overnight through Thursday will lead to lowering humidity north to south. Friday is a little cooler and noticeably less humid. Temperatures over the weekend are even cooler yet, with what looks to be pretty widespread rain Saturday night into Sunday. Most of central and southern Minnesota into west-central Wisconsin could see about 0.50″ of rainfall.

Have a wonderful night!
