A cold front is moving through our area right now and fall-like temperature will arrive for tonight, tomorrow and the weekend. We've already seen a few storms from a Watertown-to-Ortonville line and a few more will try and build towards Brookings and Mitchell in the short term.
As the front keeps moving through, other shower chances will develop this evening. Many will stay just across the North Dakota border in a west-to-east line. Then more storms should form along our eastern edges. There is a "Slight Risk" for severe weather this evening in NW Iowa, mainly for a hail and gusting wind threat. Other showers will try and form in SW South Dakota during the late evening and overnight hours. Most areas will not see much rain, maybe a few hundredths of an inch. The exception would be a thunderstorm right overhead but that won't be widespread.
That cooler air will move in tomorrow but clouds will linger for quite awhile. We're keeping a small chance for morning showers in for Sioux Falls but much of that will be to the southeast of the city. There is also a shot for Rapid City and the Hills to pick up a few showers during the afternoon.
Your weekend looks dry and sunny. There is plenty to do outdoors and the weather will cooperate with cooler temperatures. Highs for most will be in the 70s and in the 80s for some. Saturday will be the breezier of the two days. Still, it will be a pleasant time. Monday there will be a few more clouds if not a few sprinkles. As of now, the chances don’t look impressive at all.
Thursday is way off but looks like the next chance of more widespread rains. NW Iowa looks like the most likely spot for now.
