Remnants of last night's storms have been quickly fading out early this morning. Still a few clouds are left over in for the eastern side of KELOLAND. Temperatures have cooled down to the 60s with dew points in the upper 50s. Wind map shows the cold front is on the eastern side of South Dakota this morning. It's this cold front that is expected to trigger storms this afternoon.
Clouds building throughout the day and late in the afternoon, storms are expected to start in southeast South Dakota and last throughout the evening and be calming down shortly after midnight tonight. Some of the storms this evening are expected to be severe. High winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes are expected from these storms. The greatest tornado threat is in northwest Iowa.
Along with those storms, a secondary round of storms looks to move into South Dakota from Wyoming in the early afternoon. These are expected to move across the area but weaken once they run into the stable air behind the storms already in the east.
Highs today will be highly dependent on the cold front but highs in the 70s with a few 80s ahead of the front are expected.
The next work week will start off cooler with highs in the mid to upper 70s and slowly warming up to the 80s by Wednesday. The 2nd half of the week will cool down again with highs back in the 70s.
