Rain continues to develop this morning in eastern KELOLAND as a very strong area of low pressure spins to our east. This will ensure that windy weather will continue with most areas under wind advisories and high wind warnings.
The worst of the wind will be found in central and western SD, where northwest winds will gust to 65mph. This is also the area with the lowest chance of showers, so fire danger will continue. Highs will remain cool with mid 40s in the east and mid 50s in the west.
East River areas will be covered with showers through tonight. The Sioux Falls area will likely see at least .50” with the rain.
The winds will diminish tomorrow and temperatures will be a little warmer in the 50s across the east, with warmer 60s in the west.
That warmer trend will continue into the weekend with highs in the 60s in most areas on Saturday. We may have some clouds on Sunday to watch, but mild air will remain in place. A few showers could develop in the west toward Monday and additional showers could develop in IA as the jet stream starts changing.
That change could lead to a storm system late next week in the northern plains. Rain or snow could accompany that one, but it’s too early to get more specific.
