MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Tuesday will be the warmest day of 2011.

We have not warmed into the 80s in nearly 7 months, but that is about the change. A warm front will surge to the north bringing warm air near the surface and high up in the atmosphere, which will keep the severe weather at bay.
We could have a few showers or isolated storms pop along the front, but the headline will be the heat along the somewhat humid air.

The best chances of rain the next few days will be during the overnight hours.

Then a cold front will swing through and stay with us until Thursday. That will knock our temps back to the low 70s, and we tumble back to the 60s as the weekend draws near.

    How come your meteorologist won’t say the name of the town Nowthen when they are in line of storm producing a tornado?

    Could you please update us every ten minutes or so rather than just zooming in and zooming out hoping the National Wearher service updates you. It would be a lot better than waste 1/2 hour saying the same thing over and over and interrupting continuously what we are interested in watching. Sorry but the streaming updates and live ram longs just is toouch. Great programing but going on and on with the same report is redundant.
