It will be a pleasant, storm-free day across much of Minnesota for America’s birthday with highs close to 90. The high temperature for MSP will be around 88-degrees with a dew point peaking at a sticky 67-degrees, creating a heat index of 91-degrees.
Mother Nature will provide her own fireworks for the northwestern part of Minnesota, where the focus will be for thunderstorms, some of which may be severe. The dynamics for severe thunderstorms are a bit marginal today, but I still expect a few isolated storms to become severe before the midnight hour around the Wadena and Alexandria areas. Something to keep an eye on for folks going out tonight to watch fireworks. Maybe a few rumbles of thunder are possible west of the Twin Cities metro, but I’m not expecting any severe.
Happy 4th of July!
