Storm Center Update-Friday AM

Sioux Falls, SD

Scattered showers and t-storms have developed this morning west of Sioux Falls, continuing from the activity that developed last night.  While this is not a drought buster, it will help to see some rain moving toward the I-29 corridor this morning.  In between the clusters of clouds and rain, hot weather will be the story with highs in the 100s in much of central and western SD, with 90s in the east.  A heat advisory is in effect for many areas, including Sioux Falls.

More clusters of t-storms will be possible in western SD this evening and move east-northeast overnight.  Some severe weather will be possible initially in the Black Hills area.  The rain would most likely stay north of the Sioux Falls area, but we’ll watch the trends.

Hot weather is forecast this weekend, with only some slight cooling tomorrow in eastern areas where Sioux Falls will be near 95 with a light east breeze at 5-15mph. 

Scattered t-storms will be possible again tomorrow night, but only about a 20% chance at this time and mainly north of Sioux Falls.

The pattern remains the same going into early next week with highs mainly in the 90s.
