The hot weather is back Tuesday

Needed rain is moving through the Arrowhead

Other than a couple showers and storms that will impact mostly northeastern Minnesota, Tuesday will be much quieter across the state. Along with more sunshine comes the return of the heat.

Tuesday’s forecast

Minnesota is starting Tuesday warm and muggy, with high humidity and most temperatures in the 70s. There are a few 60s, mostly in central Minnesota, where overnight rain cooled the air slightly. With less rain and more sunshine Tuesday, heat returns across the state with highs mostly in the 80s and a few 90s.

Because of the high humidity, most places see a heat index from the low to upper 90s by afternoon.

There are still a couple showers and storms as of Tuesday morning, mostly around east-central Minnesota and the Arrowhead.

Northeastern Minnesota continues to see some activity into the afternoon, while the rest of the state likely remains dry. Late Tuesday, showers and storms approach western Minnesota ahead of a cold front. This could also bring some isolated severe weather to western Minnesota overnight.
