Storm Center Update- Thursday AM

Sioux Falls, SD

Rain continues this morning across much of eastern and southern KELOLAND, some of it heavy. 


Over 3” of rain has fallen the past 24 hours in Valentine, Chamberlain, and Wessington Springs.  Sioux Falls has had a storm total of 1.4” as of 5am.  The slow-moving area of low pressure in northeastern Nebraska will continue to trigger areas of rain today with locally heavy rain still possible.  A flash flood watch remains in effect until midday for areas south of I-90.  This watch includes Yankton, Gregory, and Sioux Center.  Look for highs in the upper 60s to near 70 in the southeast, while West River areas will be warmer and drier with highs in the upper 70s  near Rapid City.

Rain chances will decrease tonight with lows in the mid 50s in most areas.

We expect a blend of sun and clouds tomorrow with warmer temperatures likely in the mid to upper 70s in the east, while West River areas climb above 80.

This will set the stage for a warmer weekend and well above normal for the first weekend of autumn.  Highs will be into the upper 70s in the east, with highs near 90 on Saturday in Rapid City.

A cold front will drop our temperatures next week by Tuesday and Wednesday, but don’t expect the cooler trend to last.  A surge of much above normal weather is likely for the first few days of October.
