WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
438 AM CDT SAT AUG 23 2014

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WERE APPROACHING THE SOUTHWEST THIS
MORNING. THE COMBINATION OF HIGH CLOUDS OVERSPREADING THE STATE AND
NORTHEAST WINDS REMAINING IN PLACE HAVE KEPT THE FOG AT BAY
TODAY...THOUGH MOST FOLKS WILL BE WAKING UP TO A NICE DECK OF LOW
STRATUS WITH TEMPERATURES IN A RATHER MUGGY 60S.

FOR TODAY...THE STORMS APPROACHING THE SOUTHWEST WILL FALL APART
ACROSS THE WEST AND SOUTH THIS MORNING. INSTEAD...THE BEST THREAT
FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL COME THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT FROM WESTERN
INTO NORTHERN MINNESOTA...WHERE A FEW STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS WILL
BE POSSIBLE. ALTHOUGH IT WILL BE MUGGY...WE STILL LOOK TO HAVE MORE
CLOUDS THAN SUN TODAY...WHICH WILL AGAIN HOLD HIGHS BACK INTO THE
UPPER 70S TO LOWER 80S.

SUNDAY LOOKS TO BRING WITH IT ONE OF THE HOTTEST DAYS OF THE YEAR
FOR SOUTHERN MN...WHERE HIGHS WILL BE TOPPING OUT A COUPLE OF
DEGREES ON EITHER SIDE OF 90. ADD IN THE STIFLING HUMIDITY...AND
HEAT INDICES FOR PLACES LIKE THE TWIN CITIES AND ROCHESTER WILL BE
PUSHING 100. WILL CERTAINLY BE A GOOD DAY FOR ICE CREAM VENDORS AT
THE STATE FAIR. THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY LOOKS TO REMAIN CONFINED TO THE
NORTH...WITH STORM CHANCES INCREASING MONDAY NIGHT FARTHER SOUTH AS
A COLD FRONT ADVANCES INTO EASTERN MINNESOTA.

NEXT WEEK IT WILL BE DRY ACROSS THE NORTH...BUT THERE WILL BE THE
POTENTIAL FOR A COUPLE OF ROUNDS OF HEAVY RAIN ACROSS SOUTHERN
MINNESOTA AS THE COLD FRONT SUNDAY LOOKS TO GET HUNG UP NEAR THE
IOWA BORDER THROUGH THURSDAY. THANKS TO THIS FRONT BEING NEARBY...WE
WILL SEE PLENTY OF CLOUD COVER TO HELP HOLD HIGHS BACK IN THE 70S
MOST DAYS AFTER MONDAY.
