Minnesota weather: Hot, steamy Wednesday

After overnight storms and some much-needed rain, Wednesday will be hot and steamy.

The high on Wednesday will be around 94 or 95 degrees in the Twin Cities, with a heat index of around 95 to 100 degrees. How warm it'll get will depend on how quickly the cloud cover moves out of the area.

Rainfall amounts Wednesday morning.

Late-night or overnight thunderstorms are possible across portions of northern Minnesota as a cold front moves in.

Thursday will be another hot one, with highs in the upper 90s, marking the warmest-feeling day of this heat wave and potentially the hottest day of the year thus far. That will eventually lead to some scattered thunderstorms, especially across our eastern zones.
