Excessive heat is expected throughout the state again today and Meteorologist Jacob Beitlich with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen recommends for anyone who has to be outdoors…

“The big thing is to try and drink as much water as you can and plan for taking breaks in the shade, if you can into an air-conditioned building, to let your body cool off for a few hours, just try to take it easy.”

A heat advisory remains in effect for far southwestern Minnesota and areas in southern and central Minnesota.
