Excessive rainfall from yesterday’s storms continues to drain into rivers this morning in southeast KELOLAND. The Rock River at Luverne and Rock Rapids is at record levels, with record levels forecast on the Big Sioux River south of Sioux Falls toward Akron, IA. 6-10” of rain fell in central Lincoln County, with widespread 2-4” amounts around the region.
Thunderstorm chances are lower today, but we can’t rule out a late day or evening storm in southeastern KELOLAND. The best chances of scattered t-storms will be in the Black Hills region. Scattered storms will move east tonight toward the Missouri River Valley. There is some chance that those storms will roll east toward Sioux Falls.
Tomorrow looks warmer with more humidity and highs in the mid to upper 80s East River. Storms will be possible again tomorrow night and some of the storms in eastern KELOLAND could be severe. Heavy rain is also possible, something we will need to watch.
Slightly cooler weather is possible Thursday and Friday with less chances of rain.
