Temperatures rose into the 90s on Monday across parts of the Northland, with the “feels like” heat index topping 100 degrees in a few places, according to the National Weather Service in Duluth.

The temperature hit 91 at Duluth’s Sky Harbor Airport on Park Point as well as in Minneapolis, and hit 90 in Superior and Aitkin, 88 at Duluth International Airport and the upper 80s across the rest of the region.

It was the hottest day across the region since Aug. 25, 2013, and high humidity levels made it feel like the upper 90s and even above 100 in some areas.

The heat was expected to give way to thunderstorms overnight and then much lower temperatures, with highs near 80 today and in the 70s forecast for the remainder of the week.
