Heat, humidity may spawn storms this weekend

Northern Minnesota will bear the brunt of a wave of thunderstorms expected this weekend into Monday, according to Accuweather. Hot air from the west and humid air from the south are the cause of the potential bumpy weather. That hot air coming in from the west is a part of a high pressure ridge that will cross the Minnesota border this weekend. That moist air from the south is caused by an updraft from the Gulf of Mexico, according to Fox 9.

MPR's Paul Huttner says temps will likely be in the 90s on Sunday and Monday with sticky 70-degree dew points that will have you reaching for a towel. Those high dew points could lead to heat indices of more than 100 degrees. This tropical weather not your thing? Huttner says a cool down is expected by midweek.
