Some patchy fog has developed over KELOLAND this morning, but this should burn off fairly quickly this morning as temperatures rise into the 90s later today. Hot weather will be the theme of this forecast the next several days with even hotter weather forecast tomorrow and Wednesday. Rain chances will be isolated with a few t-storms possible in the far southwest late this afternoon and a few more cells possible after midnight east of Aberdeen. I wouldn’t count on much drought relief and some of the storms near the Nebraska border this evening could produce dry lightning.
Again, the story will be increasing heat the next few days with highs near or above 100 in many spots by Wednesday. Meanwhile, tropical storm Isaac continues a track to the northwest, impacting parts of Louisiana by Wednesday. The biggest headline from this storm may end up being the drought relief that will be possible in parts of the plains.
The heavy rain from this storm could make it as far north as Iowa later in the week, something that was totally out of the question just a couple of days ago. With this trend to the west and north, it will be worth watching to see how close this storm will get to KELOLAND.
