Even with an east wind and a cold front pushing into the region, we’ve still managed one of the hottest days of the summer. Early on, Sioux Falls picked up a trace of rain before all of the outdoor activities picked up. Now we’re tracking a DIFFERENT system on the opposite side of KELOLAND. This one packs more of a punch and there is severe weather potential West River tonight. This is primarily for wind and hail and should unzip down the line towards the Black Hills by this evening. This will eventually move closer to Pierre by midnight. Sioux Falls and Aberdeen should remain dry.
Tomorrow will be warm AGAIN as a boundary stalls out. We could see another round of storms coming out of North Dakota. For that reason we’ll have to watch the northern string of counties.
A decent wave of colder air arrives for most on Monday. This will stall before reaching Sioux Falls and we expect noticeably warmer temps in the southeast. Storms are possible late Monday and especially into early Tuesday.
From there, the forecast becomes even better. Highs flatline into the 70s and the sun comes back out.
