According to a recent article by WJON, the average number of 90+ degree days that St. Cloud sees in a given summer is 11. Last year came close at 10; the most St. Cloud has ever seen was 36 days back in 1936.

Right now, Central Minnesota appears to be on a fast-track towards hitting that annual average of 90 degree days. Last Friday kicked off a six-day series of days above 90; today's expected high is 97 (Thursday, June 10, 2021). It looks like we may get a brief break tomorrow with a pretty good chance of thunderstorms cooling things down (to the upper 80's, anyways) before it jumps up to 90 again over the weekend.
