Hot, humid day Tuesday, severe storms possible late

After a hot and humid Monday that saw us reach 90 degrees for the first time since last July, Tuesday is expected to get into the 90s again.

KSTP Meteorologist Ken Barlow said that heat and humidity will stick around and also bring some chances for severe weather later in the day Tuesday. The high will be around 92 with a low of 66 degrees.

The best chance for storms, Barlow said, is between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. Hail and strong winds are the biggest concern.

The threat for tornadoes is low but there’s still a chance one could develop.

Southern Minnesota is under an enhanced risk for storms, particularly the southeast corner of the state.

Wednesday will be less humid with high temperatures in the 80s but higher temps and humidity are likely to return later in the week.
