The Minnesota DNR says so far this has been the third “most glorious” on record, according to the all-new “Summer Glory Index.” The index is calculated based on ideal temperature, dew point and precipitation.

Swimming pools and air-conditioned spots are likely to be popular places Thursday and Friday in the Twin Cities when the scorching temperatures and humidity will combine to create heat indices of more than 100 degrees.
The temperatures have been mild and the air has been reasonably dry for the last few days, but summer could turn on like a light switch in the next day or two.
