You’ll want to find a place to cool off this week as much of KELOLAND will have summertime heat and humidity.

This is typically the hottest time of year.  Our forecast reflects it, especially as you head west.  

Average highs in KELOLAND range from the middle 80s to 90 degrees — depending where you live.  

The heat will arrive in central and western KELOLAND first.  They’re forecast to see highs in the 90s with possible triple digit heat.  Some of those 90s will spread into eastern KELOLAND around midweek.  This is the month Sioux Falls will most likely hit the 90s.

Over the past 27 years, Sioux Falls averages 6 days with highs in the 90s in July.  Getting to 100 degrees is a little tougher.  It averages out to once every two years, the last time Sioux Falls hit 100 in July was in 2012.  In fact, it happened 6 times that year due to the very dry ground.  You may remember, 2012 was a terrible drought year for much of KELOLAND.

While southeast KELOLAND will get a little relief this coming weekend with highs in the 80s, the heat will continue in central, western, and much of northern South Dakota.
