Showers and thunderstorms have found their way into KELOLAND this afternoon. A few storms have had hail ranging from quarter to golf ball sized but most have been general thunderstorms. The radar estimated rainfall amounts have been greatest along a line of storms stretching from just west of Marshall, Minnesota southwest to near Wagner, SD. That line has produced an estimated 1 to 3” with lighter amounts surrounding that line. Mitchell, SD missed out on that line of heavy rain by about 5 miles.
Tonight’s lows won’t really cool much, only dipping into the 50s and 60s with cooler 40s (and even some 30s) in western SD. The rain chances continue into the overnight as the next round of thundershowers move north into KELOLAND.
We’ll carry the rain chances well into Sunday as well however it looks like the rain should thin out Sunday afternoon. Then another round of rain will move in from the south and if projections hold true, this will be the southeast’s greatest chance for a good soaking that will last well into Monday. Sunday’s temps will be similar to today’s with mostly 50s to near 60 except for the southeast where temps will warm to the 70s again with a repeat of those 80s in northwest Iowa.
The rain will come to an end by early Tuesday next week. The rest of the forecast remains dry with much cooler highs in the 60s.
