Ever heard of a heat burst?
Redwood Falls had one early this morning, with the temperature surging from 79 to 95 degrees in rapid fashion. It also happened in Tracy, Minnesota.
In Redwood Falls, the temp jumped from 79 degrees at 6:05 a.m. to 95 degrees just 10 minutes later. And over that same 10 minutes the dewpoint in Redwood Falls went from 70 to 52, and the humidity plunged from 74% to 23%.
Storms are possible with a severe risk primarily southeast on Wednesday, though some thunder could impact the Twin Cities and much of southern Minnesota overnight into Wednesday morning.
An even hotter heat wave is poised to impact Minnesota this weekend into next week.
