The hot and humid Minnesota summer weather that has escaped us so far this season will make an appearance Sunday and Monday, with the heat index possibly soaring as high as 110 Monday afternoon. An Excessive Heat Watch has been issued for the Twin Cities Monday afternoon and evening.

Highs in St. Cloud are expected to be in the upper 80s tomorrow, and lower 90s on Monday, with high humidities.

A cool down is expected later in the week, following possible strong thunderstorms and heavy rain Monday night and Tuesday.
