SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — There are several preliminary heat records broken this afternoon. There are still a couple of heating hours left before these are final. Both Sioux City and Spencer Iowa broke records dating back to 1897.
For tonight our temperatures are going to be on the warm side. We will keep an eye on these as several could break warm low temperatures records as they reach the mid 60s and low 70s. We will have a southeast breeze overnight with clouds filling in.
Then for your Sunday, another hot day with more records in jeopardy. High temperatures are going to be in the 80s and low 90s. We will keep the strong south wind around. As well as having partly to mostly clear skies.
