A heat advisory is in effect for Monday for all of central and southern Minnesota.

The National Weather Service says the area will face another round of near-record temperatures as southwesterly winds bring hot air across the Upper Midwest.

“Humidity levels will not be overly oppressive, but the actual temperature will be near 100 degrees at most location by mid-afternoon,” the National Weather Service bureau in Chanhassen reports.
