A few “popcorn” type showers are popping up in northeast South Dakota and around the Black Hills. But there isn’t much too them – humidities are pretty low.
Tonight, whatever showers there are will again dissipate, and so will those puffy cumulus clouds we see in an otherwise blue sky.
Tomorrow we’ll have a light easterly breeze, and skies will be partly cloudy. We could again see some of those popcorn showers – but stronger thunderstorms are possible in the western third of South Dakota, which is under a slight risk for severe weather. The main threats would be large hail and strong wind. A higher tornado risk will occur in Wyoming and Colorado.
Western South Dakota will again see strong storm potential on Thursday, and even eastern South Dakota will see a better chance of thunderstorms. A southeast breeze will also increase humidity.
Strongest thunderstorm potential in eastern South Dakota will be Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will be in the 80s, with upper level wind energy approaching from the southwest.
Lesser thunderstorms will be possible on Sunday, but we will also keep the heat. Expect temps in the mid-80s Sunday through Tuesday of next week – which is also the first day of July!
