The weight of the heavy wet snow in the Black Hills is really showing up on our Terry Peak skycam this morning. We do expect more melting today, but that will also contribute to rises on creeks and streams.
The 30 day rain and moisture totals are really adding up. So many areas are now over 200% of normal water.
More scattered rain will develop tonight across the region. We have high chances for showers, but the amounts of rain will depend on the storms to our south. A general .25″ to .50″ rain is likely, but thunderstorm areas would move the numbers higher in local areas.
Highs today will be better in the 50s and 60s. Any sunshine will certainly help before the next round of showers arrives.
We have a signficant chance of rain tonight with this latest feature moving through KELOLAND. Again, amounts will not be as heavy compared to the last storm.
Tomorrow will be much better with highs rebounding into the 70s during the afternoon.
If you like 70s, you will like Saturday.
Sunday looks just as nice, perhaps a little warmer. Keep in mind thunderstorms may begin by Sunday night, however.
Memorial Day is looking wet with showers and thunderstorms in the forecast.
The pattern is a little quieter by the middle of next week as the jet stream flattens a bit.
Enjoy the 70s. It will FEEL much better!
