The front end of the forecast looks great. Enjoy the 80s today as it will be a good drying day in KELOLAND.
There could be storms this evening in North Dakota. In fact, a couple of them could drift into northeast SD later today.
A cold front will be on the move tomorrow. We are still expected 80s ahead of the front in Sioux Falls, but Aberdeen will likely stay in the 60s.
More scattered t-storms could develop along that front by Thursday night, with a marginal severe weather risk noted on the map below.
Friday is forecast to be a more active severe weather forecast as a strong warm front slowly lifts northward during the day. The strongest storms will stay on the warm side of the boundary, but heavy rain and hail can be expected with the strongest storms on the north side of the bounday, which include much of eastern KELOLAND.
The parameters for severe weather are higher in Nebraska, thus the “enhanced” risk as shown below.
We will be no stranger to rain this weekend. We’ll be on the cold side of the storm track on Saturday into Sunday. This means rain will continue and too much of it.
Even snow flakes are possible in the northeast Sunday afternoon with a gusty and raw north wind over 30 mph.
More rain arrives next week. The 10 day rain total forecast is not good for most of the upper Midwest.
Please enjoy the short-term forecast.
You can see the cooler weather by next week with more 50s for highs once again.
