Tonight is looking clear and quiet, except for some spotty showers in the west. Overnight lows will dip to either side of 50 across the region.
Skies will be mostly to partly sunny tomorrow with a southeasterly breeze. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s in the east with the low to middle 80s in central and west KELOLAND. Temperatures will be similar on Thursday, in the mid 70s to lower 80s. It should be another dry day, with the exception of some early morning rain in the northeast.
The atmosphere gets quite active starting on Friday. Highs will be in the 60s to mid 70s, but with a front moving up from the south we’ll have the potential for thunderstorms Friday afternoon and night. The potential exists for strong to severe thunderstorms, mainly in south central and southeastern KELOLAND – including cities like Winner, Chamberlain, Mitchell, Sioux Falls, Yankton, Worthington, and Spencer.
The weekend looks very unsettled. Rain and thunderstorms are expected across KELOLAND on Saturday, and we may see rains exceeding two inches in eastern KELOLAND through Sunday. Due to the thick cloud cover we will also see cooler temperatures, with highs in the low to mid 70s East River, and the mid 60s West River.
We expect rains to continue in the form of scattered showers on Sunday. It will be even cooler, with highs in the 50s to 60s.
Monday should be mostly dry, but then another system of rain and cool air comes in Monday night and Tuesday, with below-normal temperatures in the 50s to mid 60s by midweek.
