We’ve had some thunderstorms pop up this afternoon in eastern and western South Dakota. One cell even produced a funnel cloud near De Smet. But as the cell matured and merged with the other storms in the area, the concerns switched to wind gusts about 30 to 40 mph with radar indicted small hail.
And as the day goes on, these storms will lose the sun’s energy and fade out so the overnight will have clearing skies and overnight lows within a few degrees of 60.
Tomorrow will be mostly sunny with temperatures near average, so low to middle 80s, across KELOLAND. And with northwest winds, the humidity will be lower than the last couple of days. Still a chance for isolated, pop up, afternoon showers near the Black Hills.
Sunday will be very similar to Saturday, sunshine with the west having a chance for isolated storms. The only difference will be the afternoon highs. West River could reach the upper 80s to near 90 degrees while the east will be in the low to middle 80s.
Next week brings back the warmer than average weather with afternoon highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Chance for showers and storms at the start of the week.
