In this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast, climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois discuss:

  • Last weekend's severe weather outbreaks. 
  • The characteristics of supercell thunderstorms. 
  • Weather that's spiking the Glory Index meter this week. 
  • A near perfect summer weekend ahead with a very slight chance of storms.

Looking ahead, there could be some spotty showers and perhaps a crack or two of thunder Friday and Saturday in parts of central Minnesota, and then more widespread rain possible Sunday night and Monday. 

None of it will be a total washout and pretty much everyone has a better chance of staying dry than getting drenched. 

Severe weather? Maybe a few storms go severe Sunday night in parts of Minnesota, but no outbreaks like last weekend.
