Warmer, A Few Storms Today

Today will be partly cloudy and a bit warmer than yesterday. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80s this afternoon with a light northerly breeze. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms across central South Dakota and across southeastern South Dakota and northwestern Iowa mainly south of I-90 this afternoon. While one or two storms could bring hail or strong straight-light wind gusts, the overall severe threat is low.

The chance of thunderstorms will continue tomorrow. Once again the overall severe threat will be relatively low, however, tomorrow’s round of storms will bring the potential for heavy rain. One-half inch or more rain will be possible with storms that develop, and that includes extremely dry portions of central and north-central South Dakota.

After the rain ends Wednesday night, we will will cool down for a couple of days. By Thursday and Friday, highs will only reach the low to mid 70s. I do have a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, otherwise the weekend will be partly cloudy with highs in the 70s to 80s.
