Scattered showers continue to push through eastern KELOLAND this morning. It’s nice to see something on the radar for a change. Don’t expect anything heavy, however.
Much of this rain is evaporating, but again a few sprinkles are reaching the ground as seen on our downtown skycam just before 6am.
We have very little rain to report as of 6am, with most areas picking up just a few hundredths of an inch.
Most of the sprinkles and showers will push east of Sioux Falls through 11am. This is what futurescan shows at that time in the day.
The morning clouds will move east and south through noon, with mostly sunny skies forecast this afternoon and temperatures climbing into the lower 70s in many areas.
The winds will stay strong enough from the north for high fire danger in many areas of the east. We have a red flag warning in effect for much of SW MN today, so be extra careful out there today.
Big changes are ahead. Tomorrow is still forecast to be a warmer day with highs in the 80s in the central and west.
By Wednesday, a cold front will move across KELOLAND, with cooler winds and dropping temps West River.
This front will really impact all of KELOLAND by Thursday. The best chances of showers will be in the northern half of KELOLAND, but the cold air will win this battle with highs returning to the 40s and 50s.
There is a chance of light snow in the Black Hills by Friday in this pattern. I don’t think we’ll be back in the 70s for awhile, so enjoy the warmer temps while they last!
