Thursday will still be soggy with showers and storms likely. Highs will be below average with temperatures in the fifties to near sixty. Winds will increase from the north and average twenty to thirty-five miles per hour in central and western South Dakota; eastern KELOLAND will have speeds of fifteen to thirty miles per hour.
With cold air overhead Friday and Saturday, scattered showers will still be possible as May sunshine heats the atmosphere. Not everyone will get wet, but be prepared for a shower or two. Temperatures on Friday and Saturday will remain well below average with middle fifties in eastern KELOLAND to near sixty in the central and west. Central and western South Dakota will have less of a chance for rain those days.
Temperatures will slowly warm on Sunday and the warming trend will continue into next week. By Tuesday, expect temperatures to be at or above average with dry skies.
Showers and storms will become more numerous as we go through this evening and tonight. Central and southern KELOLAND has the best chance for rain. While I don’t expect severe weather, heavy rain will be possible at times. Rain amounts of over an inch will be possible in central and eastern KELOLAND. Lows tonight will fall to the forties and fifties.
