KELOLAND Live Doppler is full of echoes. But as we talked about last night, those thundershowers are moisture-starved, unfortunately producing more wind than rainfall. 60 mph winds knocked out power in Orient earlier today, and the clouds were pretty scary when a wave went through Aberdeen – but only 0.13” of rain fell.
We will keep spotty thundershowers in the forecast for tonight, mainly in SE South Dakota (including Sioux Falls). Again, rainfall will be limited – but strong winds or even small hail will be possible due to moisture in the higher atmosphere.
The same will be true tomorrow – again, spotty and moisture-starved chances of t-showers in eastern KELOLAND.
Temperatures remain the big story. Our highs will be in the low 90s during the weekend. Then we turn on the burners for next week. We will see highs in the 90s all week. But western and central South Dakota may crack 100 degrees midweek. It will be a hot and mostly dry 4th of July holiday period.
