Storm Center Update- Wednesday PM, August 23rd

It has been a beautiful late summer day across KELOLAND. Skies have been sunny except for some afternoon clouds that have popped up. Temperatures have been near normal, in the 70s east of I-29 and 80s west of the interstate, with a light southerly breeze.
Tonight skies will be mostly clear, and it won’t be quite as cool as it was this morning. We’re expecting lows in the upper 50s in the East River to the low 60s in the west.
Tomorrow will be partly cloudy in Sioux Falls and the southeast - and sunny to the north and west. Temperatures will be similar to today, in the upper 70s to mid 80s, with a light SE breeze. There will be 80s in the western part of South Dakota, and that could lead to some late-day thunderstorms that might be on the strong side.
With an area of low pressure to the west, it appears our best chance of rain will begin Friday as energy moves across the area from west to east. Ahead of the thunderstorms, we’ll have highs in the upper 70s East River to the mid 80s in the west.
Friday’s rains will continue on Saturday East River, especially during the morning hours. It appears at the moment as if we could see some total rainfall amounts of a half-inch to an inch or more. Saturday’s highs will still be in the upper 70s east to the mid 80s west.
Sunday looks like the nicer day of the weekend, although there could still be a few lingering showers East River. Otherwise the skies will be mostly sunny, with highs in the upper 70s East River to the mid 80s in the west.
Next week looks like it will start dry and warmer. Skies will be mostly sunny, and temperatures should rise near normal east River, while western South Dakota could see temperatures in the upper 80s. The rest of next week is also looking warm.
