There is a small chance for storms tonight mainly for SW MN, but otherwise a quiet evening is expected. Tuesday will be quite hot, followed by another hot day on Wednesday. Heat indices will be over 100 degrees on both days, so be sure to practice heat safety!
As the sun continues to descend, we are getting a better look at the coverage of the smoke aloft. Notice all of the green? That's all smoke. Normally we would expect to see a lot of deep blue in this false color image, which would represent the surface.
Yep. Another hot day, with highs in the mid 90s to just over 100. Unfortunately, it will be even hotter for Wednesday. It does look to cool down for the end of the week though!
Heat and humidity will combine to create dangerous heat indices for today, and a Heat Advisory is in affect for the entire area. Take precautions if outdoors!
Working outside today in the heat? Here are a few things to consider before you head out the door...
Heat Advisories are in effect for our entire coverage area today with Excessive Heat Watches for Wednesday. You can find more safety information at:

35 years ago on January 28, 1986, at 11:38 a.m. EST, the Space Shuttle Challenger lifted off from Kennedy Space Center. 73 seconds after liftoff, the space shuttle exploded. Here is the view that GOES-6 satellite captured a few minutes later. #Challenger
Ever go outside and wonder "Why is the sky blue?" Well look no further! The phenomena called Rayleigh scattering is the reason why the sky is blue! Take a look at this graphic to learn more about this awesome science ?
Take a look at the Tuesday morning temperatures across the country. This map shows just how far extremely cold temperatures have plunged into the South.
Wildfires burning across the western US and Canada continue to result in hazy/smoky skies across the north central US. You can find more about how wildfire smoke is impacting air quality across the country at:
