Today feels very similar to Wednesday doesn’t it? Storms to start the day across eastern South Dakota and southwest Minnesota, extremely hot into central South Dakota, some sunshine and A LOT of humidity, and a threat for severe storms. If that isn’t déjà vu then I don’t know what is. We are expecting those storms as we move into the late evening and into the overnight tonight. The best chance for storms is into northern and eastern South Dakota and into southwest Minnesota. Large hail, damaging wind gusts, and heavy rain is all possible.
Those storms will last through much of the overnight along and to the east of I-29, which will keep things toasty overnight tonight. Low temps into the upper 60s and low 70s out east, while off to the west we will be a touch cooler. Wind will start to turn to the northwest as the storms pass through and that is where we will start to feel some changes. Saturday will still be a hot and sunny day, but the humidity shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Humidity levels will drop as we move into the midday hours and that trend will last all the way into Sunday. Northwest wind at 10 to 15 mph will be the culprit for that. It will still be a hot day with upper 80s and low to mid 90s expected for those of us across the area.
Sunday will be much nicer with temperatures closer to normal into the low to mid 80s. Overall it will be sunny and less humid out there, which will bring a phenomenal day to be outdoors! Things stay that way for most of us on Monday with the mild weather to the east, but the heat will creep back in out west. That brings another unsettled pattern for the middle of next week as we will have storm chances Tuesday through Thursday!
