Scattered showers and storms moved into the state mid-morning Thursday. And KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas says thunderstorms could return after 7 p.m. Thursday. 

Yuhas says the chance for major storms was not high, but damaging winds coupled with hail and heavy rains could be possible in the Twin Cities between 7-11 p.m.


A severe thunderstorm watch alert was active throughout the state until about 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Mitchell said some bands of heavy rain could move through the state, which she said were actually needed, since the state was well below average rainfall for the month.  

Yuhas reported there were delays at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport due to storms in the metro.

After storms make their way through the state, a heat wave is expected. Yuhas said temperatures will be close to 88 degrees on Friday, and should crack 90 over the weekend.

Just as important, Mitchell said the dew points will be in the low 70s, which translates to high humidity and will increase heat indices near 100 at times.
