The Sioux Empire skipped out on a lot of severe weather yesterday; one strong cell moved through central portions of the forecast area during the morning and early afternoon hours while we say more storm development across the Missouri River Valley. That morning storm helped stabilize the atmosphere yesterday but are sill going to be weather aware as we could see more severe storms going into your Friday.

While we do have a marginal risk for severe weather this afternoon across the Sioux Empire, the greatest threat for severe weather is going to be Thursday late overnight hours into the early morning hours as a low pressure system lifts northwards. It's warm front being the forcing mechanism could force severe storms to develop across the southeast during the morning hours then across the north during the actual day. We'll keep an eye on these storms as wind and hail would be the main threats.

For Thursday, most of the rain activity is going to be found across the Missouri River where we desperately need the rain. The chance isn't that great to see a thunderstorm or two but that's where we'd find them during the day while we see more quiet skies across the east. A weak disturbance is skating through southern parts of the forecast area along a stationary boundary. As we go throughout the day, temperatures are going to be hot once again climbing into the 80s and 90s.

We'll see the chance for showers and thunderstorms overnight into Friday and throughout the day on Friday as another low and its warm and cold front move eastward. There is a slight risk for severe weather across much of the east to kick off the weekend. Temperatures are going to remain hot as we go into the start of the weekend but eventually we'll see more mild temps return by Sunday and stick around through the middle of next week. That's also when we could see another round of showers and thunderstorms.
