Expect a high of about 89 degrees Thursday in the Twin Cities. KARE 11 says it'll be a bit less humid than Wednesday:

A weak disturbance moving from northeast Nebraska, to southern Wisconsin by noon Thursday, will provide for isolated to scattered showers, and possibility a thunderstorm across far southern Minnesota, and portions of west central Wisconsin, the National Weather Service says. Elsewhere, much drier conditions will develop, but temperatures will rebound into the 80s, and lower 90s.

High temps will continue to hover around 90 through July 4, forecasters say.

Hundreds of heat records have fallen across the U.S., the Associated Press says.

No doubt energy bills will be higher due to the heat wave. KARE 11 has tips on how to efficiently use your air conditioner.
