It was a warm, sunny Saturday in KELOLAND. Afternoon temperatures climbed into the 80s for most of the region and northern South Dakota even reached the 90s. This weather is likely to repeat tomorrow but some parts of KELOLAND have to go through some thunderstorms tonight.
This evening, a weak cold front will pass over KELOLAND and bring thunderstorms to eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota and eventually northwest Iowa. With evening temperatures in the 80s, some of these storms in the northeast could be severe with high winds and large hail. There is a tornado watch in eastern North Dakota so storms will need to be monitored closely this evening in case any make it into northeastern South Dakota.
Once the storms move through this evening, the overnight will have mostly clear skies with temperatures dropping to the low 60s.
The sunshine continues Sunday with highs a little cooler due the weak cold front; afternoon highs reaching the low to mid-80s. Winds will be from the north and pick up speed, ranging at 10 to 20 mph with 15 to 25 mph winds in the southeast. Gusts could range near 30 mph.
Sunday night the skies will remain clear and overnight lows will dip into the 60s again.
Sunshine and 80s will continue next week with a return of showers and storms in the middle of week.
