Dahl said dew points are expected to climb throughout the weekend, making for humid conditions.

An air quality alert issued by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is in effect through Sunday. 

The unhealthy air quality can impact those with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, people with heart disease or high blood pressure, children and old adults and people who spend extended time outdoors.

Things will cool down just a bit Tuesday, with a possibility of thunderstorms.
