Get ready for another dose of extremely warn and humid conditions, especially in parts of eastern Minnesota on Thursday and Friday. 

Yes, it's been hot and humid all week, but Thursday and Friday will rival the heat – and maybe surpass it – that Minnesota dealt with Sunday and Monday. 

From the National Weather Service: "Highs around 90 Thursday and 90 to 95 Friday, combined with dewpoints in the 70s, will make for heat indices around 95 to 105 degrees for both Thursday and Friday afternoon. Low temperatures will only fall to 70 to 75, providing little relief from the heat."

With that, the following counties have been placed in a heat advisory from noon Thursday to 7 p.m. Friday: Hennepin, Anoka, Ramsey, Washington, Sibley, Carver, Scott, Dakota, Brown, Nicollet, Le Sueur, Rice, Goodhue, Watonwan, Blue Earth, Waseca, Steele, Martin, Faribault, Freebrn, St. Croix, Pierce, Dunn, Pepin, Chippewa and Eau Claire. 

The good news is that the heat and humidity will be on the decrease early next week as the weather service anticipates a pattern featuring cooler and drier weather. 

The map below shows the 8- to- 14-day temperature outlook across the country. There's at least a 40 percent chance of below normal temperatures during the period (July 25-31).
