Next Weather: As Storms Move Out, Dangerous Heat Looms

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A storm system is making its way out of Minnesota Monday afternoon, though the southeastern corner of the state isn’t out of the woods yet. Once storms move out, dangerous heat will follow.

A storm complex moved over the Dakotas and weakened overnight, but still brought heavy rain to parts of Minnesota, particularly the south and southwest. WCCO weather watchers recorded as much as 3 inches of rain in Owatonna.

Cottonwood County remains under a flash flood warning until 1:15 p.m.

The rain will clear out as we head into the afternoon, but it will stay cloudy into the evening. The metro will top out at 83 degrees. Southern Minnesota will hit the 90s, while up north in Duluth and the Arrowhead highs will only reach the 50s.

Tuesday will be a Next Weather Alert day due to dangerous heat. The high, forecasted for 97 in the metro, may break a record for the daily high temp, which was set at 98 in 1987. The heat index will rise into the triple digits. An excessive heat warning has been issued for the Twin Cities, while much of southern Minnesota is under an excessive heat watch.

Storms will roll through parts of the state Tuesday night into Wednesday. We’ll have a quiet to end the week. It will dip down into the 80s from Wednesday to Friday, with the return of extreme heat possible next weekend.
