It's another hot and largely dry forecast for the coming week.
This afternoon into the evening, there is some lingering energy despite the lack of clouds across the region. Very isolated storms have developed along our eastern border and farther off to the east. A new round of clouds in the Hills could mean a stray storm before sunset but we are not expecting much rainfall at all tonight.
Tomorrow should be a copy of today without morning shower chances in the southeast. You'll be seeing abundant sunshine and maybe some rare fair-weather clouds. Starting Sunday, the heat possibilities get interesting. A low moves through North Dakota and that will draw in strong south winds (also from the SW). That means daytime temperatures will soar and much of South Dakota will be very hot, easily into the upper 90s.
Monday, that sticks around much like Sunday. By Tuesday a new cold front will move in. You can expect a marginal cool-down Wednesday but for most it will still be toasty.
We have slim rain chances in place for early Tuesday and early Wednesday. While many computer models have a general idea about this, it is still pretty far out. Moisture is a huge concern for much of KELOLAND but widespread downpours aren't in the forecast.
Next Thursday, another round of strong heat is on the way.
