Storm Center Update - Sunday PM

We've been tracking one very isolated storm but otherwise today has been extremely quiet.  The developing heat ridge will easily be the big local weather story for most of the coming week.

Nationally, Tropical Storm Isaac has taken over headlines and now some signs point to at least indirect effects on KELOLAND.   New computer model runs take the track slightly westward.  That mean if the system survives, there is an outside chance of rain bands eventually making it here.  Again, that's still a long way off and things change. 

This evening, clouds should start increasing in central South Dakota.  If more moisture were around, we'd probably get some showers but it doesn't seem too likely tonight. 

Tomorrow will be hotter in almost every location.  FutureScan wants to bring a single shower through eastern KELOLAND early in the day but this should be small. 

Later tomorrow evening is one of our better chances for the week for rain.  Showers should form in central South Dakota and will progress eastwards.  These night-time systems are usually pretty spotty coverage-wise.

Wednesday looks to be exceptionally hot ahead of a cold front that arrives Thursday.  Winds will pick up.  We've kept in slim rain chances for Saturday.
