Our heat and humidity is likely here to stay

After finishing the warmest June in 15 years in the Twin Cities, we crank up the heat even further as we head through the first week of July and our long Independence Day weekend. While highs in the upper 80s and low 90s are far off from daily record highs, and not exactly unusual around here in July, it will likely be the persistence of these 90 degree temps that will wear us down… and could set records themselves.

It’s not your imagination, June has been WINDY

The really warm start to June may have escaped you, it’s a summer month after all so the warmth is expected, but I doubt the wind has blown by you without notice. Gusty breezes have made themselves well known over the last few days with what has felt like one long never ending gust. While Minnesota is a fairly breezy place, especially farm country across the western half of the state, the first half of June has been a bit unusual.
