Temperatures will be on the rise through the weekend but storms will plague the Minneapolis area.

Thermometers will begin to climb into the 80s by the weekend.

With the heat and humidity building in, an uptick in storms is expected, especially during the late part of the weekend.

Low temperatures will hang around in the low 60s over the weekend.

Overall, July has started off cooler than normal for Minneapolis, with high temperatures only reaching above the average of 84 twice. Those came earlier this week.

Thunderstorms will dampen the city both Saturday morning and throughout the day on Sunday.

Heading into next week, a passing shower or two may dampen the city on Monday but temperatures will drop, following the weekend thunderstorms.

Looking into next week, a stretch of cooler weather is expected as Typhoon Neoguri in the Pacific forces a cooling effect on the weather in the Midwest and East.
