This heat is NASTY! Temperatures this afternoon have climbed into the upper 90s and low 100s across the area and combined with the high humidity it is made it very unpleasant to be outdoors. All of that heat and humidity has combined to bring us a lot of energy which has brought us storms already out there this afternoon. More on the way tonight as we have a severe thunderstorm watch in effect until 11pm CDT.
Storms overnight will bring us heavy rain and the chance for some large hail and damaging wind gusts. The heaviest rain is expected to occur to the south of US-14 and into southern South Dakota. Some spots could see 1 to 2 inches of rain. Storms will continue east as we move into the morning hours and temperatures will stay very warm. Upper 60s and low 70s, with wind turning to the northeast.
Wednesday will be a very rainy day across the southeast with rain and storms lasting into the middle of the day. Skies will be cloudy across the area with wind from the northeast driving in drier air. Skies will clear to the north of HWY-14 and that is where temps will be warmest. High temps into the upper 80s are possible, while farther south the clouds and rain will keep things cooler into the upper 70s and low 80s. Once the rain clears out by the afternoon we will see clearer skies and drier weather! The resto f the week looks sunny and mild with temps right around, if not below, normal!
