Our long hot and dry stretch of summer across Central Minnesota will finally wane, but not before a cold front could bring severe storms across Central Minnesota tomorrow night.

Today will be the seventeenth day with a high temperature of ninety degrees or above this summer, when an average season brings eleven of those days to Saint Cloud. (The most, thirty-six, came back in 1936.)
