Hopefully dad likes it hot.

The heat index for Father's Day will climb to near 100 degrees in the Twin Cities and much of central and western Minnesota. By 11 a.m., the heat index was already over 90 degrees in west-central Minnesota, the National Weather Service tweeted.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from 1 p.m. through 8 p.m. for the area. The agency warns that the hot temperatures (90-95 degrees) and high humidity could lead to heat illnesses.

To prevent heat exhaustion or any other heat-related illnesses, people are encouraged to drink lots of water, stay in air conditioning and out of the sun.

Storms this afternoon

Severe storms are expected to develop Sunday afternoon, mainly after 4 p.m., the National Weather Service says.

There's an enhanced risk for widespread thunderstorms for much of central Minnesota, according to the Storm Prediction Center, while there's a slight risk for severe storms in the Twin Cities.

The main threats with the storms are large hail and damaging wind.

There's also an air pollution advisory for the Twin Cities and parts of southern Minnesota from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. because the ozone pollution is expected to near a level that's considered unhealthy for some groups, including those with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, the elderly, and children.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says with temperatures in the 90s, sunny skies, an increased level of ozone moving in from the central United States, and some from the southwestern U.S. wildfires are contributing to the formation of ground level ozone on Sunday.
