Sioux Falls, SD
Partly cloudy skies are forecast today with highs in the mid to upper 80s in eastern KELOLAND and upper 90s and lower 100s in the west.
There will also be plenty of wind out there with southerly winds at 15-30mph and higher gusts.
Partly cloudy skies are forecast tonight and overnight lows will be warmer with lower 70s in Aberdeen and Sioux Falls, and mid to upper 60s in the central and west. Another hot day is forecast tomorrow with highs in the mid and upper 90s. The heat index will be over 100 as well, so take care out there and drink lots of water if you have to be working out in the heat.
A cold front will trigger some scattered storms Thursday late afternoon and evening in western and northern SD. Some of those storms could be severe, but a strong cap on the atmosphere should shield Sioux Falls from most of the thunderstorms. The only chance of rain for Sioux Falls will be early Friday morning.
A stronger disturbance will arrive in KELOLAND by Saturday night, with better chances of showers and t-storms. Highs this weekend will be in the mid 80s. The 4th of July is looking warm with highs once again in the mid 80s and a chance of late evening t-storms…typical for this time of the year.
