Storm Center Update - Saturday AM

A few brief storms have been popping up overnight around the Black Hills and the surrounding area of Rapid City. Otherwise, KELOLAND has been quiet. Skies have been mostly clear to clear while fog developed in eastern and northern KELOLAND. Visibilities have been dropping to near 2 miles or less.

Any fog leftover over will lift leaving behind another sunny day. Today is also expected be a hot and humid day for the Midwest and KELOLAND. Southerly winds will bring more moisture leading to dew points in the mid-60s to near 70 and warm afternoon air temps in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Western South Dakota has a chance to see some morning showers and storms but clearing in the afternoon.

The energy leftover from the storms in western South Dakota will move eastward to central South Dakota. South central South Dakota has the better chance for these storms and the current timing has storms firing up late in the afternoon and lasting into the evening. These are expected to be brief and move southward out of KELOLAND, however, with afternoon temperatures reaching the 80s to near 90, some could be strong to severe with large hail and high winds.

Once those storms fade out or move out of the region, mostly clear to clear skies are expected overnight with lows bottoming out in the upper 60s.

Sunday will start off calm but a cold front moving through the Midwest will bring showers and thunderstorms in the late afternoon and lasting through Sunday night. With plenty of energy in the atmosphere and plenty of moisture, these storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain, large hail, and high damaging winds.

Next week will start off calm, sunny, and cooler due to the cold front Sunday evening. Highs next week in the upper 70s to low 80s are expected.
