Miss winter yet? Heat advisory issued through Thursday

A heat advisory has been issued for the Twin Cities and a seven-county region from 1 p.m. Tuesday through 9 p.m. Thursday, as hot, humid weather drenches much of the state for the next few days. The advisory was issued for Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties.

It's going to be sticky as the heat index soars to near 100 degrees in the metro on both Tuesday and Wednesday, forecasters say. Forget about good sleeping weather for the next few nights – it'll be muggy in the 70s for a low in much of the state. KARE 11 calls it a mini heat wave with tropical dew points through Thursday.

It'll still be 90 degrees at 8:30 p.m. in Minneapolis on Wednesday when the Aquatennial Torchlight Parade kicks off, WCCO reports.

Powerful storms are possible Thursday night, but the system should bring lower temperatures and humidity this weekend, FOX 9 reports. Thunderstorms are most likely in the northern part of the state, with a 60 percent chance in Ely and Duluth Thursday night, forecasters say.

There's a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the Twin Cities on Thursday, the National Weather Service says. It'll be partly sunny with a high of 91 that day.

FOX 9 Meteorologist Cody Matz explains why it's important to pay attention to the heat index.
