After sunrise today, we saw huge changes in the weather pattern. As expected, sunshine and mild temperatures have ruled the day. There were a few passing showers in the east early on but other than that, it’s been a lovely day. We still haven’t received many damage reports from overnight storms, which is a good sign.
Tonight will be quiet and mild. Apart from a possible stray shower coming over the Black Hills, we’ll all be dry. Those could grow a little bit because of higher instability but it’s a calmer pattern than the past few days. Tomorrow won’t be a washout but there are shower and thunderstorm chances to talk about. The Gulf is back open so higher moisture levels will start to spill in early tomorrow. The start of the day East River should be very nice but a disturbance will come out of north-central Nebraska around midday or the early afternoon. Later in the day and into the evening we have a chance of severe storms. These are likely to form NW of Pierre and along the ND border. These should move to the ENE, closing in on Aberdeen late. That’s why the forecast for the daytime hours is dry but there is a good chance after the workday.
There are slight rain chances for some Tuesday and Wednesday but expect a much warmer and drier forecast to take hold by midweek. We’ve included a slight chance next Sunday in Sioux Falls but, besides that, we’ll get a chance to catch our breath.
Have a great week!
