MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Friday reached a high of 93 degrees, breaking the record that was originally set 101 years ago in 1911.
Friday is also the hottest day we’ve seen since Sept. 12 of last year.
This heat is well above average for May, and is more typical of what we experience in July.
West of the metro, including the Red River Valley, may feel temps approaching the mid-90s. High winds may help to deaden some of the heat.
Temps fall by a degree or so this Saturday, with highs in the upper 80s.
