Southeast KELOLAND has been breezy throughout much of the day and it has allowed temperatures to climb to the lower and middle nineties. Temperatures are a little cooler in northeast South Dakota with lower eighties in Aberdeen, Ortonville, and Sisseton. Central and western South Dakota have warmed to the middle eighties and low nineties.
Many locations will stay dry through the evening, but showers and storms are expected to develop after sunset. The best chance to receive the rain (40-50%) is in northeast KELOLAND, from Huron to Marshall and north. South of that area will have a slight chance for rain, about 20-30% chance. Temperatures will remain mild tonight with lows falling to the middle sixties.
I’m not too impressed with our chance for rain on Thursday. The moisture and energy don’t seem to be there, but it will still warrant a slight chance (20-30&) for a stray shower or storm in eastern KELOLAND. Despite the chance for rain tonight and Thursday, temperatures will only be slightly cooler with highs in the eighties to near ninety on Thursday.
Friday will be a dry with highs remaining in the eighties and nineties, but a cold front will bring another chance for rain on Saturday. Unfortunately, the new data is suggesting very little moisture is available so I decreased the chance for rain to about 20-30%. Temperatures this weekend will range from the lower eighties in eastern KELOLAND to near ninety in central and western South Dakota.
