Excessive heat arrives in Minnesota today and stays through tomorrow…

“We have a heat advisory for far, far southwestern Minnesota, and meanwhile, areas in southern and central Minnesota have an excessive heat watch so we could see those really high heat indices especially for Wednesday.”

Meteorologist Jacob Beitlich with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen says heat index values of up to 105 degrees are possible today and tomorrow. He’s urging Minnesotans who have to be outdoors to stay hydrated and take plenty of breaks.
