Cooler Air Coming After Heat Blast

September 8, 2012, 6:15 PM by Scot Mundt

Cooler Air Coming After Heat Blast

Just last Wednesday, the triple digit heat blanketed much of southeast, central, and western KELOLAND. 

While Sioux Falls hit 100 degrees, it was 111 in Pierre, 112 in Chamberlain and Winner while Academy topped the charts at 113.

Thursday's temperatures were at least 20 degrees cooler in eastern KELOLAND and 30 or more degrees cooler in central South Dakota.  And those 100s for highs are about to become a distant memory.

In previous years, Sioux Falls has seen seven days with record highs in the 100s in September. The latest  is September 19. 

Rapid City has a bit more with ten records at 100 degrees in September, Aberdeen has 15 days, and Pierre with 18.

But this cool down may only be temporary.  Of the top ten driest summers, four have produced record highs in the following September.  The latest was a record high of 90 degrees on September 30, 1976.  That followed what is now the third driest summer on record.
