Oct. 9 Weather with Sven: Record heat Friday, storms Sunday

Video Duration:

The Twin Cities and much of southern Minnesota could push for record high temperatures Friday, with the forecast high in the metro rising all the way to 86, which would tie for Oct. 9 in Minneapolis. 

But the heat will be accompanied by hazy skies thanks to smoke from Colorado wildfires that continue to burn. Meanwhile, all eyes are on Sunday when rain chances return to Minnesota, and many locations really need some precipitation. 

In fact, parts of western and central Minnesota are in a slight risk for severe storms, with the Storm Prediction Center suggesting that damaging winds are the main threat along with isolated hail.
