Scattered showers and thunderstorms have been hovering between Huron and Mitchell overnight, bringing some much-needed rain to watermelon country. Those showers and thunderstorms will dissipate this morning.
We are off to a sunny, comfortable start to the week. Today will be mostly sunny with highs ranging from the low to mid 80s in the Sioux Falls area to the upper 80s along the James River to the low 90s across central and western South Dakota.
Tomorrow will be warmer with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. The overall severe weather threat is low, but one or two storms could bring hail or strong straight-line wind gusts. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible again on Wednesday into Thursday.
High temperatures will drop into the 70s by late this week. The weekend ahead will be mostly sunny with high temps rolling back into the low to mid 80s. I might have to add a few scattered showers and thunderstorms on Sunday into Monday. I’ll let you know more as we get closer to the weekend.
