Today’s forecast is an interesting one to say the least. A weak cold front will make its way into KELOLAND this afternoon that will spark up a line of showers and thunderstorms. In addition to that, upper air low pressure near the Four Corners to our southwest will also force showers to up from the north. So a lot will happen over the next 36 to 48 hours.
As of now, a line of storms will start this afternoon along the cold front out in the west and northern parts of the state with a chance for a few pop up storms in the east. But because this cold front is weak, these storms will be diurnally driven so expect storms to start later in the heat of the day and weaken once the sun has set. Low pressure to the south could help showers remain through Sunday night into Monday morning. Then for Monday, showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon for mainly eastern KELOLAND along the cold front. Once the cold front moves out of the area on Tuesday, South Dakota should see skies clear out and warmer temps stay for the rest of the week.
Temperatures today topping out, once again, around the 80° mark, and then tonight, cooling to the upper 50s to low 60s. And for Memorial Day, highs reaching the upper 70s to low 80s once again.
