From meteorologist Bill Endersen:
As of Friday evening strong thunderstorms are leaking from the Dakotas into western Minnesota. This slow development means that storms are not likely to get to the metro area until after midnight and probably will weaken a bit by then.
As far as the weekend is concerned, Saturday will have widely scattered showers and highs in the low to mid 70s. Sunday will be the brighter, warmer day with highs near 80.
Some humidity will return with dew points in the mid 60s ahead of some rain likely for Tuesday.
For sky watchers, the Perseid meteor shower that peaks tonight won’t put on much of a show in these parts thanks to the clouds and a nearly full moon. The moon will be full on Saturday when it rises at 8:25 p.m. in the Twin Cities.
There is plenty of potential tropical activity over the Atlantic Ocean. Here is a link to the National Hurricane Center. Hover your mouse over the colored circles for details.
