High level clouds will continue to spread through KELOLAND this evening and early tonight. We’re also watching a cold front that will bring a change in direction to western and central South Dakota and that’s it. The breezy south winds in southeast KELOLAND will continue for this evening, and then slowly back off during the overnight. Lows will fall to the forties and fifties.
Wednesday will be another mostly sunny to partly cloudy day. Highs will be much like today with widespread sixties and seventies.
Low pressure will move into Nebraska late on Thursday. This will allow for an increase in clouds and developing showers and storms. Severe weather will also be possible in central and south central South Dakota after 3:00 on Thursday. The rain will move into eastern KELOLAND Thursday night into Friday, but it is not expected to be severe.
The rain amounts will have to be watched. With the heavy snow melt in western South Dakota and rain expected later this week, areas of flooding will be likely. Some computer models are spitting out over an inch for Rapid City with lesser amounts in central and eastern South Dakota.
The rain will be finished by the weekend with cooler and drier air expected to move into KELOLAND. Highs this weekend will be in the fifties and sixties.
