Minneapolis will end the weekend with the threat for severe weather.

There is concern for some localized severe thunderstorms in the area on Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will be slightly higher as well, climbing into the upper 80s.

Still, temperatures will not reach the record high for this weekend, which topped out at 99 F in 1988.

Those who do plan to be outdoors should take precautions when spending extended amounts of time in the sun and use sunscreen frequently. In high heat, it is equally important to stay adequately hydrated. If outside when storms roll in, seek shelter upon the first sight of lightning or upon hearing thunder.

Looking ahead to next week, more storms will pester the area. Monday could bring thunderstorms, though the threat will taper off into Tuesday. More rain could fall at midweek.
