Scattered showers and storms will be possible in western KELOLAND later this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms will contain strong gusty winds as they rumble through into the plains of western South Dakota. Elsewhere, dry skies will continue through the evening with temperatures in the eighties and nineties.
Isolated showers and storms will try to move into central and northeast South Dakota tonight, but the chance is only at twenty to thirty percent. Southeast KELOLAND will stay dry tonight with temperatures falling to the sixties throughout the area.
Showers and storms are still in the forecast for Thursday and Thursday night. This is when a piece of energy will move along the border of South and North Dakota. This should be enough to spark showers and storms during the afternoon and evening in central, north central, and northeast South Dakota. Any storms that fire have the potential to produce strong winds. The limiting factor will be the amount of moisture available, so the chance for rain is low…thirty percent. Highs on Thursday will be in the eighties and nineties.
Any rain that develops will move east and southeast, eventually moving into eastern and southeast KELOLAND during the evening and overnight. The best chance for rain will be along and north of Interstate 90. Models are also hinting at lingering rain along and east of Interstate 29 on Friday! Friday’s highs will also be in the eighties and nineties.
The weekend will be dry and warm with highs in the eighties and nineties. Early indications are showing next week will be hot and dry with many locations back to the middle nineties, some places even hotter.
