With temperatures in the 90s, Monday will be the hottest day of the week.
KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said it will be the 17th time this year temperatures have risen to 90 degrees or higher.
However, Barlow said that number isn't "even close" to the record number of 90-degree days. He said that record was set during the summer of 1988, with 44 days that had temperatures in the 90s.
Barlow said temperatures are expected to drop slightly during the rest of the week.
He added isolated thunderstorms could move through the state Tuesday, bringing cooler air with them.
