Hot temperatures will continue for the rest of the week and into the weekend. Many locations in KELOLAND will have highs in the nineties to near one hundred during that time. The combination of heat and humidity will cause the heat index to climb to the lower one hundreds for many east of the Missouri River.
In the meantime, scattered storms have developed in northwest South Dakota this afternoon and are moving east. The chances for rain will mainly be for the northern half of KELOLAND, we’ll keep the chance to get wet at twenty percent. Some of that rain will even last into the early morning in northeast KELOLAND before exiting and leaving behind another sunny and hot afternoon.
Models are showing hints of slightly cooler air for the second half of the weekend and for Labor Day. As of now, we have temperatures “falling” to the middle eighties to near ninety on Sunday and highs in the middle eighties on Labor Day.
