Most areas are starting warm and humid in KELOLAND, setting the stage for more storms later today and tonight. The biggest headline today is the moderate risk of severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center
. The moderate risk applies to the potential of widespread damaging winds of 60-80 mph
with thunderstorms late this evening and overnight. They will likely start in western Nebraska late this afternoon and move east.
Before that gets here, isolated or scattered severe storms will be possible in extreme southeastern KELOLAND south and east of Sioux Falls. The atmosphere will be capped much of the early afternoon, but if these storms do develop, large hail bigger than golf balls
and isolated tornadoes will be possible
For those of you tired of the storms, we have good news Wednesday and Thursday as drier air moves in from the north. Highs will remain in the 80s, with a warming trend returning by Friday and Saturday, along with more humidity and scattered thunderstorms.
