Storm Center Update-Thursday AM

September 20, 2012, 6:08 AM by Brian Karstens

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Several fires were reported in KELOLAND yesterday with high winds and low relative humidity.  The Murdo fire was very intense.  Here are some photos of the fire courtesy of Kim Wilson-Sweebe.

 

 

We have another picture of a grass fire in the Watertown area, a spot that has had a lot more rain this year and proving these grass fires can show up just about anywhere in KELOLAND.

Today’s weather will be less windy than yesterday, helping the fire danger.  Here’s a look at the peak wind gusts from around 2pm yesterday. 

We’ve had clouds moving in from the north the past 12 hours and even a few returns have been showing up on KELOLAND Live Doppler HD. 

 

I wouldn’t count on much of this reaching the ground.  The planner looks better today with more clouds and less winds, with temperatures getting close to 70 in Sioux Falls later today. 

 

Temperatures will be warmer with more wind in Rapid City where fire danger will be high again today. 

Looking ahead, the weekend forecast is looking colder with breezy north winds Friday night and Saturday morning.  Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s in the east.  A frost or freeze is possible Saturday night, something we’ll be watching over the next couple of days.

Next week looks warmer as a ridge in the jet stream over the Pacific Northwest moves in our direction.  Highs will likely return to the 70s and 80s.  I’m sure we’ll be dealing with more fire weather issues as well with the warmer weather.
