Heavy storm damage at Big Stone Lake….More Scattered T-storms Ahead…Hot Start to the Week…
A cluster of severe storms and at least 2 possible tornadoes created quite a mess last night in northeastern KELOLAND. Some of the worst damage is on Big Stone Lake where damage is concentrated at Cramer’s Resort, the result of a possible tornado. Large hail also affected parts of the northeast, up to the size of tennis balls near Hillhead.
The storms are gone now and today will mainly dry, but very warm. 90s are likely in the south with mid 80s in the north. Scattered t-storms will develop tonight again central SD, mainly north of I-90 and then head toward Aberdeen. We only have a 20% chance of rain in Sioux Falls and in the Gregory area as well, one of a few areas that really could use the rain.
There is a cold front on the march tomorrow that will trigger scattered t-storms by late afternoon in the Sioux Falls area. Those thunderstorm chances will continue tomorrow night and early Wednesday. Cooler, less humid weather will follow across much of the area for midweek. Thunderstorm chances will then return to KELOLAND Friday night and Saturday morning, mainly in the northern half of the area.
