After several days of scorching heat, relief is in sight for Minnesotans.
A heat advisory is in effect for central and southern Minnesota through Thursday evening. By mid-afternoon, temperatures had reached 93 degrees in the Twin Cities and Duluth, 94 in St. Cloud and Redwood Falls, and 97 in Red Wing.
The combination of heat and humidity was making it feel more like the high 90s to low 100s in much of Minnesota. Meteorologist Dave Dahl says there's a cool front in the northern part of the state that's finally going to start moving southward early Friday and it could bring an isolated thunderstorm. Thunderstorms could develop late Saturday night and be scattered through Sunday, but the chance remains small.

It should be more comfortable Friday. Highs Friday will range from the mid-70s in northern Minnesota to the low 90s in the southeast.
