A blast of mid-September heat is in progress and the Twin Cities will be among the hottest spots in Minnesota on Saturday.
The National Weather Service has placed Hennepin and Ramsey counties in a heat advisory from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The advisory includes the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul along with every other city in the two-county advisory.
Temperatures are expected to climb into the low 90s, and the combination of tropical dewpoints around 70 will make it feel like it's 95-100 degrees outside.
Heat illnesses are possible for people who will be active outdoors or those susceptible heat illnesses, like children and older adults.
The overnight low Saturday into Sunday for the Twin Cities is forecast to be 72 degrees, which is what the typical normal high temperature is this time of year.
Temperatures will remain hot on Sunday with the mercury again climbing to around 90 degrees in much of Minnesota.
Some relief from the heat arrives some time on Monday as a cold front moves through, but with it comes a chance for storms, some of which could be severe on Monday afternoon and evening.
Overall, next week is shaping up to be a much wetter weather pattern.
