A drier day across most of Minnesota

Strong storms move into northern Minnesota late Tuesday

Warm and humid weather continues, with only an isolated chance for showers and storms, especially in southern Minnesota. Storms, including possible severe weather, target northwestern Minnesota late Tuesday.

Tuesday’s forecast

Tuesday is starting slightly cooler for northern Minnesota, with temperatures in the 50s, but it stayed warm and muggy overnight in southern Minnesota, with 70s. The entire state stays warm again, with highs in the 80s.

Northern Minnesota stays a bit more comfortable, with lower humidity, while the southern half of the state remains humid again. 

A lingering frontal boundary is producing a few showers and storms for southern Minnesota Tuesday morning, and that area is the most likely to see isolated activity through the afternoon while most of the state stays dry and sunny.
