Storm Center Update - Wednesday PM

A cold front will continue to move into eastern KELOLAND this evening with developing showers and storms possible. The atmosphere is very dry, so a lot of the returns on the radar from this morning and afternoon were having a hard time reaching the ground. We should be able to moisten up the atmosphere this evening to allow for rain to hit the ground in eastern KELOLAND through tonight. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some areas get a third of an inch or more, but those areas will most likely be caught under a stronger thundershower. Temperatures will fall to the thirties and forties tonight with northwest winds subsiding to five to fifteen miles per hour.

The front will be completely through the area on Thursday allowing for dry skies and seasonal temperatures. Some areas will be slightly above and below average Thursday, but overall we’ll have temperatures in the sixties.

The pattern will become active with greater chances to get wet Sunday and into next week. As of now, low pressure will slowly move through the upper plains to allow for a chance of rain Sunday through Wednesday. Western South Dakota will have the best chance to get the rain during that time.
