Temperatures in the 90s and dew points in the 70s are expected to continue through the majority of the week. Bill Hewett is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities.

“We have an upper-level ridge over the central United States, which is putting warm flow over the south and southeast here,” said Bill Hewett, a meteorologist with National Weather Service in the Twin Cities. “With any kind of ridging over us, you’ll see warmer temperatures and higher humidity due to gulf air heading into southern Minnesota.”

“Try to take as many breaks as possible,” said Hewett. “And drink as many fluids as possible.”

Hewett says more comfortable weather with temperatures in the 70s and dew points in the 50s should arrive Saturday.
