MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s hot streak is going to stretch over most of the next work week, and the only relief in sight is that the weekend looks to only see highs in the upper 80s.
The National Weather Service on Sunday extended the head advisory already in effect in the Twin Cities for another few days this week, until 8 p.m. Thursday.
Minneapolis-St. Paul will see highs in the 90s through Friday, and dew points are expected to rise over the next few days. It will be similarly hot across the state.
The Twin Cities should see blistering sun over the work week as well, with the next chance for showers and storms not looking likely until Friday.
WCCO meteorologist Lisa Meadows reports that, by the end of the week the area may have achieved the fourth longest streak of 90-plus-degree days on record.
By the end of this week we may have a streak of 9-90 degree days in a row! This would be the 4th longest stretch of 90s+ on record. When we will finally get a reprieve from the heat and the humidity coming up on @wcco News at Noon. pic.twitter.com/kGhbnkwizt
