Storm Center Update-Wednesday AM

Sioux Falls, SD


Scattered rain showers will continue today as low pressure continues to spin to our east. Most of the showers will be result of instability in the air after we break some of the clouds and bring in a few rays of sunshine. Don’t be surprised at a clap of thunder too. Winds will be gusty from the northwest in the Sioux Falls areas, but winds will decrease this evening and tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, the weather looks much better Thursday with sunshine and highs in the 60s, even close to 70 in Pierre. A cold front will march across KELOLAND Friday with highs still in the 60s. Thunderstorms are expected along this front by late Friday afternoon and evening. A cooler weather forecast is expected this weekend with northwest winds. We’ll likely stay in the 50s with a few scattered showers. The best chance of rain will be early Saturday morning.
