    Before more seasonable air can filter into Minneapolis for Labor Day, severe thunderstorms will first threaten the city.

    A cold front slicing into the steamy air in place across Minneapolis will touch off thunderstorms capable of causing damage early Saturday night.

    The strongest thunderstorms threaten to produce damaging winds, hail and downpours. An isolated tornado touching down cannot be ruled out.

    Anyone spending Saturday evening outdoors should heed all storm-related warnings and seek shelter as soon as such warnings are issued or thunder is heard.

    In the wake of the thunderstorms Saturday night, the heat and humidity will noticeably ease for Sunday and Labor Day. Dry weather and seasonable daytime high temperatures will compliment the weather these days.

    Temperatures Sunday night will drop into the 50s for the first time since August 15.
