If you’ve enjoyed the past few glorious days of mild temperatures and low humidities, prepare for a change starting today and continuing through Sunday as much of Minnesota is under the threat of severe weather. 

In this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast, climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois discuss the weather pattern that will bring higher dew points and the possibility of large hail, damaging winds and even tornadoes. 

Blumenfeld says that “a pretty potent batch of thunderstorms” will develop in the northern two-thirds of Minnesota later this afternoon and evening. The storms “could be quite intense," according to Blumenfeld, and will build southward towards the Twin Cities and possibly beyond. 

Blumenfeld says “Saturday looks a little calmer but by Saturday night we’ve got risks for thunderstorms again, and Sunday looks quite active also” with possible severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. 

Also, a look at the “mega rains” of July 25-26 and the possible return of hot weather in mid-August. Listen in the player below.
