ST. PAUL – The Twin Cities and most of Minnesota should expect to see tropical-type weather and possibly severe thunderstorms Sunday.
While the metro area has a chance of thunderstorms after midnight Saturday, storms appear likely Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service. Some of the storms could be severe, with heavy rain, large hail and damaging winds possible.
The metro and the southern half of Minnesota will also see some warmer air Sunday, with a high forecast in the 90s and a heat index – a measure of how hot it feels – as high as 101.
The weather service has issued a heat advisory for much of Minnesota from 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday. It’s mostly from a line from Morris to St. Cloud and then south to the Iowa border.
With the heat and high humidity comes an increased risk for heat-related illnesses. The weather service advises people to drink plenty of fluids, stay in air-conditioned rooms and check up on relatives and neighbors.
Temperatures are expected to dip a bit during the workweek. After a high near 89 Monday, highs are forecast in the low 80s through Wednesday.
All three days will also see chances for thunderstorms.
