Storm Center Update- Severe Outlook

May 8, 2014, 5:26 AM by Brian Karstens



A very active weather pattern continues in KELOLAND as thunderstorms affect parts of the east and snow falls in the west.

Overnight storms produced areas of heavy rain and some hail.  Reports of hail were received in the Pipestone/Dell Rapids area.  Another storm produced hail around Beresford. 

A new headline today is the new severe weather risk map.  A moderate risk of severe weather is possible across portions of SW MN and NW IA.  Locations in the moderate risk area include:  Worthington, Sibley, Spirit Lake, and Spencer.  Sioux Falls and Brookings are in the slight risk.

Snow has also fallen overnight in SW SD with more accumulations likely through the morning.  A winter weather advisory has been posted for areas just south and west of Rapid City where 1-4” of snow will be possible through the morning.

The forecast today will focus on the severe weather threat in the southeast.  There is a good chance of severe storms developing along and east of the I-29 corridor by early this afternoon.  Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes will all be possible. 


General rain is likely for Aberdeen and Pierre, with a rain/snow combo ending in Rapid City by late afternoon.  Temperatures will range from the 80s in NW IA to the upper 30s in the Black Hills.

Look for a much quieter day tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and highs mainly in the 60s.  Another disturbance will be headed for KELOLAND this weekend with additional chances of showers and t-storms.
