SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) – More rain is in the forecast and the wet conditions go beyond KELOLAND.
It seems like days like Tuesday are rare, when the sun shines and temps warm to the 60s and 70s. Precipitation has become the normal across the upper plains and Midwest.
A day like Tuesday is exactly what we need to help dry things out not only in KELOLAND but for our neighbors as well.
A graphic from the Iowa Mesonet shows the departure from average since the beginning of the year. There’s a strip of moisture of four inches and above from eastern South Dakota through Wisconsin. In fact, this map shows much of the upper plains and Midwest are well above average so far this year.
The sunshine will be replaced with clouds and rain for the second half of this week and the weekend. There’s even talk of snow somewhere in the upper plains.
Some are off to their wettest start of the year in KELOLAND, and that’s something we will continue to monitor.
