We have another morning with scattered t-storms in the James Valley this morning. This activity will continue to drift east during the morning. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies today with highs mainly in the 80s.
Another round of storms will develop West River late this afternoon and tonight. Severe weather is possible and a flash flood watch is in effect for many counties West River. These storms should move east tonight, so overnight rainfall is more likely for East River areas.
Friday is shaping up to be another very active day with clusters of rain ongoing in the morning and new development during the late afternoon. Moisture levels will be high and heavy rain is a real threat. Some severe weather can be expected, with nearly the entire state of South Dakota under a slight risk of severe weather.
Storms are again likely on Saturday with more severe weather possible. While thunderstorms are in the forecast in the Black Hills, the majority of the severe weather chances will shift into eastern KELOLAND.
The scenario for severe weather may actually get worse by Sunday in the southeast. Most of our weather data is pointing toward very active weather along a slow-moving boundary in portions of southeastern KELOLAND. It’s too early to say exactly where that boundary will be, but the odds of severe weather are high if the present ingredients come together as forecast.
