Showers and thunderstorms have popped up in western South Dakota. So far, these thunderstorms haven’t made it far outside of the Black Hills so if this pattern continues; the storm activity should die out once the sun goes down. Eastern and southeastern KELOLAND could also see some thunderstorms late this afternoon and evening. The heat of the day is prime time for storm development so we’ll keep a close eye on clouds to help give us an idea of what the atmosphere is doing.
Any thunderstorms that are able to develop in the southeast should die out rather quickly once the sun goes down. Models only keep thundershowers lingering into the overnight in northeast KELOLAND. Those storms are in northwest South Dakota this afternoon but are projected to keep marching eastward. So tonight’s forecast only includes rain and thunder for the northeast while the rest of the area has clearing skies. Overnight lows will dip into the 60s.
Some models hint at some thundershower activity for eastern KELOLAND tomorrow afternoon but those storms will be isolated so most of the region should remain sunny. Highs tomorrow are expected to climb into the 90s.
High pressure will keep building over the western US and that means continued sunshine and heat for KELOLAND. Highs for Thursday should reach the 90s to near 100, a weak cold front at the end of the week means cooler 80s for afternoon temperatures on Friday.
The weekend brings back the warmer temps and sunshine with highs back in the 80s and 90s.
