The hot weather may be something we should get used to for the rest of the month.
The weather is going in reverse. As our average highs continue to go down, our actual highs continue to go up.
Sioux Falls only had three days with above average highs for the first 15 days of the month. Through Tuesday, the second half of the month has already had two. Our recent heat spell will most likely stick around.
The upper air patterns across the United States show hot air staying put for a lot of the southwest and central U.S., including KELOLAND.
Even into next week, a blocking pattern may set-up with a trough in the west and a trough in the east. This should keep us above average for much of next week too.
That may not be too hard to do as the average high temperature in Sioux Falls is 80 degrees on Sunday, it's just a matter of how warm we get.
So if you're a fan of the summer heat, enjoy it for the rest of the month as there are indications of more seasonal air as September starts.
