A Tornado watch has been issued for parts of KELOLAND. This means all kinds of severe weather (tornadoes, large hail, strong winds) are expected.
The day started off with showers and storms moving through KELOLAND. Rainfall totals were up to an inch in Phillip but most reports around the area were under a quarter inch. Once the rain moved through or faded out, skies cleared our quickly and air temps jumped into the 80s and it’s that warm air that will add energy to the thunderstorms expected tonight.
These storms are expected to start near central KELOLAND and move eastward through the evening and into the overnight. Some of these storms are expected to be severe with large hail and gusty winds. There is a tornado threat but it’s low for this round of storms. Once the storms move through, skies will clear and temperatures will cool down to the mid to upper 60s.
Partly cloudy skies tomorrow with warmer temperatures for some, central and western South Dakota will reach the mid-90s. Eastern KELOLAND will have afternoon temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.
The partly cloudy to mostly clear skies continues for Sunday night. Low temperatures will range in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Storms could start the next work week when a cold front moves through the Midwest. Afterwards cooler and dry conditions will last to next weekend.
