Storms rumbled across KELOLAND last night. We had several reports of gusty winds in western KELOLAND and hail reports north of Eureka. The storms weakened overnight, but more rain is expected today.
Most of the activity will be more scattered in nature this afternoon. As of 5:50am, rain totals of .50″ to 1″ were common along in the green shaded areas SW of Sioux Falls as shown on the map below.
As temperatures rise into the 70s, a couple of the cells south of Sioux Falls could approach severe limits.
The Storm Prediction Center has posted a marginal risk of severe weather in the southeast later today.
Highs will be in the 70s this afternoon as the system moves across KELOLAND.
As rain comes to an end overnight, temperatures will fall into the 50s in most spots.
Tomorrow will be mild with a slight chance of isolated showers in the afternoon across eastern KELOLAND.
Better chances of rain will return late Thursday into Friday. A stronger area of low pressure will track just to our south. We think southern KELOLAND will pick up heaviest rain, some spots over 1″. However, the north will also get rain.
There’s more rain coming on Saturday. The moisture and clouds will keep temperatures cool on Saturday in the 50s and lower 60s. We do see warmer trends by Mother’s Day.
