Minnesota weather: high temperatures could reach 90 degrees on Sunday – WCCO
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Following a severe storm system that swept through the state, the weekend will heat up, with temperatures reaching 90 degrees on Sunday.
Temperatures on Saturday will warm up after what started as a chilly morning, reaching 79 degrees in the metro area. Overall, the state will experience above average temperatures, although areas on the north shore will be closer to average, with highs in the 1960s.
The night will be warm, especially in the west. Marshall and Fargo will experience lows again in the 70s.
Sunday will be hot, with temperatures reaching 80 degrees statewide and 90 degrees in the Twin Cities.
However, winds will be up to 30 to 35 mph, according to meteorologist Mike Augustyniak, which means there will be choppy water on some of the lakes.
The temperature will then cool down a bit until Monday, when the state could see a series of widespread rains, with a potential for three-quarters of an inch to an inch and a half to accumulate in the afternoon and evening.
After that, temperatures will cool down until the 60s.
This all comes after a series of extreme weather conditions; the National Weather Service confirmed that three tornadoes hit Minnesota early Friday morning. The tornadoes at Burnsville, Apple Valley and Le Sueur were all rated EF-0, with winds reaching 80 mph.
A 4-year-old girl in Mankato died Friday morning when a tree branch fell on the tent she was sleeping in. Natalia Ashes died at the site of the 49th Mahkato Wacipi, a powwow that honors the 38 Dakota men who were lynched in 1862. A celebration of her life is scheduled for Saturday night at the powwow.
