Sioux Falls, SD
Hot Start to the Weekend…Scattered T-storms Likely The Next 24-36 Hours...
Another hot and windy day is forecast in eastern KELOLAND. Many locations will be close to 90 once again with strong south winds at 20-30mph. Scattered t-storms are forecast by mid to late afternoon in the west, and those showers and storms will head east tonight. Some strong storms will be possible, but widespread severe weather is not forecast. While there is a 20% chance of rain in Sioux Falls late tonight, most of the chance of rain will stay to the north and west.
Areas of showers and t-storms will become more likely East River tomorrow as a cold front moves east. The best chance of rain in Sioux Falls will be after 3pm with highs around 80. One other story tomorrow will be strong northwest winds in western KELOLAND where a high wind watch has been issued. Highs will be the 60s in the west, with lower 70s in the central and the northeast.
Rainfall of .25” to .75” looks likely with this system, which is needed after all of the wind and heat the last few days. More rain is in the forecast by the middle of next week as a stronger storm system pulls into the plains.
