MINNEAPOLIS — Wednesday will be another day of isolated storms in the Twin Cities before we dry out and heat up this weekend.

The day's high will be 84 degrees. Humidity remains and will even get a bit worse as the heat shows up this weekend. Stay hydrated and take breaks.

After popping up Wednesday morning south of Interstate 94, storms will continue for the afternoon.   

Around 3 p.m., thunderstorms reached the Twin Cities, bringing strong wind gusts. Up to an inch of rain is possible in the metro area. 

A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for Dakota, Hennepin and Ramsey counties until 3:45 p.m. 

⚠️ 50+ mph wind gusts possible in the Twin Cities metro as these thunderstorms drop southward from the I-94 corridor; up to 1" of rain is also possible. If you're outside, get INSIDE a sturdy building at the first rumble of thunder.

We dry up for the most part on Thursday and Friday. There could be some patchy showers Thursday morning. Temperatures hit the mid-80s with some a bit warmer than that. It may not be the most comfortable outside if you're caught out in the sun for a while.

We have a real shot for the 90s this weekend, with the best chance being Sunday. We also have a shot at a few early showers on Saturday.
