Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)  - Another very warm and humid day is expected across southeast Minnesota Tuesday with high temperatures likely in the 90s for a third straight day.

Highs across the region Monday were generally in the low to mid-90s.

Rochester’s official high of 96 was three degrees short of the record for the date.

But it was also the warmest it’s been in the city in 5 years.

The heat index reached 100 degrees around 1:30 pm and stayed there for a few hours.

Conditions in the city were likely even warmer as the city's official weather statistics are measured near the airport.

Temperatures were still in the upper 70s in the Rochester area around 2:00 am Tuesday and some fast-moving storm cells moved through the area an hour later.

Most Visited State Parks In Minnesota: Is Your Favorite in the List?

Minnesota has 75 beautiful state parks. The parks have an average of 9,700,000 visitors each year. Interestingly enough, nearly 19% of park visitors come from other states and countries, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Now, my favorite State Park is Jay Cooke in Carlton, MN, but it did not break into the top 5.
