Mild weather lasts through tomorrow for many. The big story changes to autumn-like temperatures and a chance of thunder late tomorrow.
Through the rest of your afternoon, very spotty shower coverage is possible in the northeast. Clouds will continue to clear out from west-to-east.
Tonight, a few showers could develop although it does not look like a widespread event. Some rains will try to intensify just west of the Missouri as is usual for overnight summer systems. We’ve also kept in a slim chance for rain in the Sioux Falls area.
Winds kick up tomorrow. The approaching lengthy and strong cold front will bring in hot temperatures initially. Most of the heat will be in the east and that is where a “Slight Risk” of severe weather sits. Late during the evening, these stronger storms will likely move our way from portions of Minnesota. There is really not much moisture in play here, so we don’t expect downpouring rains. Some of these higher-based storms could produce hail and maybe some damaging wind potential. It looks like another piece of the front will produce showers in the far west and will spread east as the front moves into Nebraska. Pierre looks dry mostly because of bone-dry air.
Showers continue into early Thursday and it’s going to be dramatically cooler. Some spots will be 20+ degrees cooler in just one day. Almost all of the highs will be in the 70s. By Friday, stable air arrives. That means crisp morning lows and lots of sunshine.
Saturday looks to have quite a bit of sunshine, too, and we’ll also start warming back up.
