High temperatures will reach the low 90s by Wednesday afternoon, with heat indices nearing triples digits in many areas. A heat advisory will go into effect tomorrow at 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
During this time try to limit any strenuous outdoor activities, drink a lot of water, remember to check in on elderly neighbors, and keep a close eye on kids and pets. It's important to know the signs of heat sickness:
Some slight relief is on the way as we head toward the weekend, temperatures only dipping into the mid 80s but dew points will be in the low 60s. That break from the heat will be short as highs will be back in the upper 80s by next week.
Our next rainfall chances could only bring about a quarter inch to most of southeast Minnesota, even less in northeast Iowa. Expect a few scattered showers and storms late Wednesday into the early morning hours, and a few afternoon storms on Thursday.
