The Twin Cities missed out on the heavy rains that soaked central Minnesota and western Wisconsin overnight into Friday morning.

Just 0.07 inches of rain was recorded at MSP Airport, while western Wisconsin had by far the highest amounts, some of which were in excess of 3-4 inches.

Now it gets hot and mostly dry. Temps will near 90 multiple times over the next week, possibly soaring into the mid-90s on Monday, according to the National Weather Service. But as meteorologist Sven Sundgaard mentions in today's video forecast, a cool front could trigger storms Tuesday.

The Storm Prediction Center has already placed most of Minnesota and all of Wisconsin in a slight risk for severe storms on Tuesday, though the National Weather Service in Chanhassen isn't talking up the severe potential very much. It'll certainly be something worth monitoring over the weekend and Monday.

Also in the video today, Sven talks about the all-time record heat that is scorching Spain and much of Europe.
