Storm Center Update-Thursday AM

Sioux Falls, SD

More Morning Frost North…Scattered Showers Southeast…Finally, Warmer Weekend Weather…

Showers are still dotting parts of southeastern KELOLAND, but the heavy rain is over.  The Sioux Falls area had between .50” and .75”.  Similar amounts have been reported around Mitchell and Mobridge.  A couple of showers will be possible east of I-29 this afternoon as colder air above creates enough instability for showers during the peak heating of the day. 

The other story of the morning is the cold weather.  Frost advisories have been issued for northcentral KELOLAND where temperatures have dropped into the mid 30s.  Hopefully, any talk of frost will be gone after today for a few months.

The weather pattern is looking warmer into the weekend with highs into the 70s West River Starting tomorrow, and more 70s and 80s this weekend.  This transition to warmer weather will be accompanied by more scattered rain again tomorrow with a few t-storms possible by the afternoon hours west of Sioux Falls.

Otherwise, much warmer and more humid weather will be likely next week.  Scattered t-storms will be possible late Sunday and then again by Wednesday according to our latest data.  This pattern should help NW IA and SW MN dry out after so much rain in May.
