MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – After a humid and stormy Sunday, a cold front will wash over Minnesota for Labor Day.
Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak says Sunday’s highs will climb into the upper 80s – about 10 degrees higher than average for this time of year. Combined with the high humidity, it’ll feel even hotter.
Strong winds will also be a factor, especially as thunderstorms develop in the afternoon.
Starting around 2 p.m., a line of severe storms will develop in western Minnesota, moving east. They’ll hit the Twin Cities metro in the early evening.
Overnight, the storms will move out and the humidity will begin to lift.
By Monday, dew points will have fallen to more comfortable levels. The high for Labor Day is expected to reach 80, which is still above average, but it will feel cool in comparison to the steamy weekend.
Looking forward, the rest of the week will have highs in the 70s and 60s. By next weekend, it’ll feel like fall.
