Sioux Falls, SD
Another day of showers continues in eastern KELOLAND as an area of low pressure continues to slowly move east into Minnesota. Rainfall totals this week have been very high in the northeast in the 1-3” range, including Aberdeen, Watertown, Milbank, and Sisseton. Also, heavy rain has been reported in the northern Black Hills with around 6” of rain near Whitewood since Saturday. The showers today won’t be that heavy, but more planting delays will continue in many areas.
Clouds will decrease tonight and tomorrow with warmer weather likely. Highs will be back to near 70 in most areas. This trend is expected to continue into Memorial Day weekend with highs in the 70s. The pattern looks unsettled too with periods of scattered t-storms starting Friday and continuing into next week. The most unstable air will arrive first in SW South Dakota, but this air will overspread much of KELOLAND by Memorial Day. Stay tuned for more on this change in the days ahead.
