It’s a warm start to the morning in much of eastern KELOLAND. In fact, a heat burst caused temperatures to soar to 91 in Huron at 4:30am. Several other locations in east-central South Dakota have seen a rise in early morning temperatures with a few passing showers and thundershowers. A strong cold front is moving across the region too, and the weather behind it is much cooler with a strong NW wind. Highs today will range from the upper 60s near Rapid City to the mid 80s in NW IA.
Cooler weather will continue tonight with lows near 43 in Aberdeen. Most other spots won’t be that cold, mainly in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
There will definitely be a taste of fall in the air on Friday with highs in the upper 60s to near 70. The weather will slowly warm through the weekend, with highs mainly 70s.
Next week will be very interesting. A warmer forecast is ahead early in the week with areas of showers and t-storms possible…mainly on Tuesday. A strong cold front will be lurking to our north by midweek. There are growing signals showing some of this colder weather will head south into KELOLAND at the end of the week. Stay tuned for details on the forecast in the coming days.
