The heaviest of the overnight rain continues to push east towards the Minnesota and Iowa borders. Many spots west and north of Sioux Falls did manage more than an inch. For the most part, these morning showers are “mop up duty,” as more HEAVY rain isn’t expected for KELOLAND. We’ll include the VIPIR rainfall total map next to the forecasted map below:
The pace is picking up as the cold front speeds east. Still, rain could take much of the morning to clear our eastern borders. We’ve got widespread overcast skies for now but that’s going to change. Skies will clear behind this line, as much of western SD looks sunny by this afternoon. Our best cloud tool clears things out in the east by early-to-mid afternoon. Some patchy clouds return to Rapid City by later in the afternoon. It’s going to be a quiet night for most of us. Where heavy rain fell Friday night, fog is possible. Fog hasn’t been a big issue for the past few rains but now temps are getting cooler.
Tomorrow should be exceptionally mild. We’ll have some breeze over central SD but full sun looks like a good bet for most of the day. Highs will be back above average tomorrow and that’s where they’ll stay through early in the workweek. Our forecast cools a touch into Wednesday but we’re not too worried about rain chances until late Wednesday night for Sioux Falls. Others have a better chance on Thursday and Friday.
