Sunny Today, Scattered Storms Tonight and Tomorrow

Today will be almost exactly like yesterday. Mostly sunny with afternoon high temps ranging from the low 80s in Sioux Falls to the mid 80s along the James River to the low 90s across central and western South Dakota.

Our next system will bring thunderstorms to central and northern South Dakota late this afternoon into this evening. Some storms could be severe with hail and straight-line wind gusts being the main threat. Storms will develop and move southeast through the night and into tomorrow.

In Sioux Falls, thunderstorms are possible tomorrow morning with some redevelopment in the afternoon. Rain and clouds will gradually decrease by mid to late afternoon. There could be one or two strong to severe storms tomorrow. Severe chances will depend on the amount of sunshine we get. More sunshine tomorrow will give us more energy for a severe storm or two. If we stay overcast most of the day, the energy and the severe potential will be limited.

The front that brings storms tomorrow will also bring cooler air for the rest of the week. Thursday and Friday will be mostly sunny with high temps only reaching the mid to upper 70s. Temperatures will remain below average through the weekend with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible on both Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned for updates on the weekend forecast.
