The next eighteen to twenty-four hours is the best chance for rain in eastern KELOLAND.
A weak disturbance will slide through South Dakota this afternoon and evening to allow for developing showers and storms in eastern South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa. We currently have light showers near Mitchell and south toward Yankton. These are moving east, producing light rain amounts. Any storms that develop (mainly after 4:00) will have the potential to create heavier rain and strong gusty winds. Otherwise, skies will generally become partly cloudy tonight with temperatures falling to the sixties by Friday morning.
Lingering showers will be scattered east of Interstate 29 Friday morning, with partly cloudy to clear skies west of the Interstate. The showers will continue to move east during the morning, leaving behind dry skies and warm temperatures. Highs on Friday will reach the eighties and nineties. The warm air will continue through the weekend with mostly sunny skies.
Next week will start dry and hot with widespread nineties. There is some hope for changes in the pattern next week. Cooler air will try to slide through the upper plains by Wednesday and meet up with a low pressure system from the south; this will hopefully bring another chance for rain by midweek.
