Light to moderate rainfall is moving into KELOLAND this morning. Most of the rain will be contained south of I-90 this morning but the rain will continue to move north throughout the day. By the midafternoon we should see widespread rain across much of the state. The rain looks to come in 2 main waves; this first wave, which is moving through this morning, and a second wave which will develop in the east this afternoon and move north. Some areas of KELOLAND may even see a break in the clouds between the rains. The second round of rain will likely have thunderstorms. Mostly contained to the southeast corner of KELOLAND but a few may drift north along I-29. Cant totally rule out severe storms but if any do develop, hail and winds will be the main concern. Highs today will range from the low to mid-40s in the west, low 50s in the central parts of the state, upper 50s for northeastern South Dakota, and low 60s in the southeast.
The area of warmer air in the southeast will fuel the thunderstorms during the evening and overnight hours as we start the work week. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s for western and central KELOLAND, low to mid-40s for the eastern side of the state.
Wide spread scattered rain showers will be leftover for Monday. Highs still cooler, upper 40s to low 50s.
High winds will also be a factor Sunday through Monday. Sustained winds 15 to 25 mph with some areas out in the west seeing 20 to 30 mph. Wind gusts could fall into the 30s and 40s.
Tuesday, few leftover showers for the far eastern side of KELOLAND in the morning then clearing out by the afternoon. High temperatures on Tuesday reaching the 50s.
Rest of the work week will be cooler, highs mostly in the upper 50s but closing in on the 60 degree mark by Saturday.
