Storm Center Update- Friday AM, May 17th


Good Morning!

Overnight storms produced more areas of rain.  You can see the wide spread of numbers on the rain map below.

All eyes will be on the forecast later today as severe is expected across parts of the region.  The best chance of severe weather will be in the “enhanced” risk area.  

There will a tornado threat due to the nature of the wind profile today in the atmosphere.  We’ll watch those factors carefully.

Hail is the primary risk.  Even if you experience 50s today north of Sioux Falls, you can see get severe weather.

Notice the most intense storms west of Sioux Falls by early evening.

HIghs today will be in the 40s in the west.  80s will come close to the South Dakota-Nebraska border.

Storm and rain chances are high tonight.

Much cooler weather is expected again north and west of Sioux Falls on Saturday.  The far southeast will be warmer, but rain chances will be more scattered and not as heavy.

Scattered showers are still possible on Sunday with highs in the 40s and 50s.

The storm this weekend and the next one late Monday into Tuesday will lead to snow chances for western SD.  Several inches may fall in the higher elevations.

3 storms in the 10 day forecast will bring way too much moisture for the middle of the country.
