According to the National Weather Service, we should be getting our fans, kiddie pools, sprinklers, popsicles, and A/C ready for an early season, record breaking shot of heat & humidity across Central Minnesota this weekend.
The National Weather Service says that the threat of severe weather returns to Central Minnesota this afternoon & tonight. Large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes and heavy rain are all possibilities.

Welcome to May, where snow is welcoming all of us to the brand new month, but fear not -- the extended forecast beginning Wednesday has nothing but 60s and 70s for high temps as far as the eye can see. The normal high for May 1st in St. Cloud is 64˚ (and the record is 94˚).
Great news for winter lovers (not so much if spring is your thing). The National Weather Service is saying that the threat of accumulating snow is increasing across Central Minnesota for Sunday Night & Monday -- with 6"+ not out of the question for some areas.
The National Weather Service is saying that the southern half of Minnesota can expect to see one to two inches of rainfall as we approach the end of the work week. Better rain than snow at this point if you ask me.
We're going to be pushing 70˚ this afternoon ahead of a strong cold front that will usher in showers & thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some of those storms could be severe with damaging winds. Stay tuned to 98.1 and we'll keep up to date.
The spring rollercoaster ride of temperatures has arrived. Highs today in St. Cloud will reach the upper 40s, before soaring into the lower 60s tomorrow and Monday -- but like any good rollercoaster, you need a few dips in there too. Highs on Tuesday will only be in the mid 30s.
The National Weather Service is saying that a significant snow storm is headed for Minnesota. While the track has begun to shift a bit farther north, the areas most likely to see the biggest totals remain the southern and east central parts of the state. Stay tuned!
Our amazing run of three straight days with new record highs in St. Cloud is expected to continue through Wednesday with high temps expected near 60˚ for the next three days. Showers & thunderstorms are also on tap for Monday.
The weather today through Wednesday will continue to be the warmest to hit Central Minnesota since 1981. (I was in 8th grade & Ashli would be born 10½ years later). Some records gonna fall. Some ice gonna melt. Some faces gonna get sunburned. Enjoy!
What will likely begin as a wintry mix late today and tonight -- will eventually transition to all snow on Tuesday, but the storm seems to be tracking farther north, and less than an inch of snow is now expected in St. Cloud, but minor ice accumulations could cause problems.
