MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – After a steamy weekend with damaging storms, Monday is shaping up to be another hot and humid day with a chance for severe weather in the evening.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the Twin Cities metro until 10 p.m. Monday, as the combination of sunny skies, temperatures in the low 90s and high humidity will make it feel upwards of 100 degrees outside.
Those working outside are advised to drink plenty of water and take several breaks in air-conditioned buildings.
