MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s hot streak continues Sunday, and there’s no relief in sight. The National Weather Service has just extended the head advisory already in effect in the Twin Cities for another few days this week.
The Twin Cities will see a high of 93 degrees, with dew points in the low 60s. It will be similarly warm across the state.READ MORE: Minnesotans Pack Beaches On The First 90 Degree Weekend Of The Year
A heat advisory is in effect in the Twin Cities until 8 p.m. Thursday; earlier on Sunday, the NWS extended it from its original end date Tuesday.
The heat is on and the best we can say is that it looks to back off only a little by next weekend. Not only is a cool down lacking from the forecast, but so are any appreciable rainfall chances, with the best chances coming Friday. #mnwx #wiwx pic.twitter.com/bfP7AJFgFS
