Hot and Humid Today, Heavy Rain Possible Tonight

Hot, humid weather will continue today. A Heat Advisory is in effect for locations along and south of I-90 this afternoon into this evening. High temperatures will once again soar into the 90s with the heat index approaching 100 to 105 degrees.

A cold front will bring a chance of thunderstorms later today and tonight. A few storms could be severe with hail and strong straight-line wind gusts being the main threat. A bigger concern is the potential for heavy rain. There is a lot of moisture in the air today and storms that develop could produce heavy rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches or more. The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for parts of southeastern South Dakota, southwestern Minnesota and northwestern Iowa from this afternoon through Saturday morning.

Stay tuned for updates on the severe weather and heavy rain potential.
