Storm Center Update- Thursday AM, May 16th


Good Morning!

A very active forecast is ahead for KELOLAND.  Today will still be warm in the south with lower 80s in Sioux Falls.  Scattered showers are also ahead for the north as temperatures will be cooler.

Thunderstorm chances will increase tonight.  In fact, some pockets of severe weather with hail will be possible after midnight in the south.

Friday will also be an active forecast.  One look at the weather map reveal a tight temperature difference near and just south of Sioux Falls.  Storms are expected by Friday night and severe weather is looking likely.

A closer look at FutureScan shows the progression of the storms tonight from west to east, with an anticipated break during the day.  Storms tomorrow evening will become more widespread.  Hail and heavy rain is the main threat.  However, near the warm front along the Missouri River valley, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible.

This is the latest outlook from the storm prediction center.

There are many other stories out there in the 7 day forecast.  We are seriously considering accumulating snow chances for the west next week, mainly late Monday into Tuesday.

The rainfall outlook is simply astonishing.  The rain is heavy and very widespread the next 10 days, including several states and several inches. 

The rest of the forecast looks quiet today.

Thunderstorms are included starting tonight.

Keep an eye on the far southeast tomorrow for warmer temps and the risk of severe weather.

The next storm arrives by Tuesday.  Again, the storm track will remain active most of the week.
