Scattered areas of rain have been developing in western South Dakota, with more activity forecast this afternoon as the next storm system heads toward KELOLAND. There is a slight risk of severe weather West River. While Sioux Falls will have a slight chance of rain late in the day, the better chances of thunderstorms will hold off until late tonight. Highs today will be in the 80s.
Look for clusters of thunderstorms tonight in much of KELOLAND. While not everyone will get wet, the thunderstorms that do develop may produce over .50” of rain. Showers and thunderstorms may linger in southeastern KELOLAND tomorrow morning, with highs returning to the mid 80s in many areas.
Saturday and Sunday look mild with chance of scattered t-storms both day in southern and western KELOLAND. There’s still some conflicting data on how widespread that rain will be, so stay tuned for the latest forecasts.
One thing that looks more certain is the much cooler weather arriving in KELOLAND early next week. Highs by Monday and Tuesday will drop into the upper 60s and lower 70s. Record lows are now becoming a possibility by Tuesday night…perhaps in the mid 40s in some areas north of Sioux Falls? Stay tuned.
