As expected, the morning clouds cleared out, and we’ve had abundant sunshine across KELOLAND. Temperatures have been in the 50s to low 60s.
Tonight a ribbon of low pressure could produce some spotty showers (or even thundershowers) in central and south central South Dakota during the late evening. The rest of the area should be clear to partly cloudy overnight. Lows will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Tomorrow will be partly cloudy and much warmer. Highs will actually be near-normal, in the mid 60s. There could be a few very light showers, mainly during the afternoon. Winds will be from the south, turning to the west or northwest.
Saturday looks to be the nicest day of the weekend. We look for highs in the 60s – to around 70 degrees for Sioux Falls. Skies will be mostly sunny. Sunday is a different story, with partly to mostly cloudy skies with the passage of a cold front. Sunday also brings the chance of showers, cooling us back into the upper 50s to low 60s.
A warm front will cross KELOLAND on Monday, and highs will be in the mid 50s to low 60s. With that front coming up from the south, we think it is possible that severe thunderstorms will form, mainly along and south of I-90 in south central and southeastern KELOLAND.
We’ll cool back down on Tuesday and Wednesday, with chances for rain showers each day. Highs will be in the mid 50s to around 60 on Tuesday, and only in the 50s on Wednesday.
Thursday and Friday look like they’ll be cool, but it continues to look like temperatures will warm into the 60s for Mother’s Day weekend.
