Forecast: A Little Somethin’ for Everyone
From KSFY Television Meteorologist Shawn Cable
Today is going to be very similar to yesterday with wind being the one exception. Mostly sunny, warm, humid and windy with highs in the upper 80s today. Central South Dakota will be a bit warmer with high temps reaching the low 90s. The wind will be strongest east of the James River where gusts of 25 to 35 mph will be possible in some places, including Sioux Falls.
There is a cold front draped across Wyoming this morning. That front will blast across the plains of South Dakota tonight, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms followed by cooler, less humid weather tomorrow. The overall risk of severe weather is low, however one or two storms could produce marginally severe hail and/or straight-line wind gusts.
Scattered thunderstorms are possible again late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Another round of thunderstorms is possible Friday afternoon, Friday night into Saturday morning. Some storms could be severe late Friday and Friday night. Stay tuned for updates on that.
If you’re tired of the heat and humidity, you’re going to like this: A cooler, fall-like air mass will take over after storms exit Saturday morning. There will be plenty of sunshine with highs only reaching the low 70s on both Saturday and Sunday. Dry, cool weather will continue into early next week.
