Scattered showers and storms have developed along and east of Interstate 29 this afternoon. These storms are moving northeast and contain periods of heavy rain. Heavy rain has already fallen in Hamlin and Hughes Counties with a report of four inches northeast of Castlewood and another four inch report northeast of Canning. The heavy rain has resulted in flash flooding.
Scattered storms will also develop in western South Dakota late this afternoon and evening. Not only do the storms in western KELOLAND pose a heavy rain threat, but large hail and strong wind will also be possible. The scattered storms will move into central and eastern KELOLAND for tonight, but the severe threat will not be as high. Lows will fall to the sixties.
Friday will be another day with scattered storms with some of them becoming strong to severe. Highs will be in the eighties with breezy south winds of fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour.
The active weather will continue through the weekend with scattered storms possible through Sunday. Afternoon highs will be in the eighties with overnight lows in the sixties to near seventy. There’s a chance for severe weather somewhere in KELOLAND each day. The highest risk will be in eastern and southeast KELOLAND on Sunday.
Things will dry out next week and temperatures will warm. We’ll start the week with highs in the seventies and eighties, but the Fourth of July is looking warm with highs in the eighties for eastern KELOLAND to near ninety in the west.
