Let it rain! It has definitely done that across our area today! Rainfall totals have eclipsed the one inch mark in many spots across the Sioux Empire. Very beneficial rain continues to fall across the east and we will see more through the overnight tonight. Because of that many of us are finally above normal on rainfall for the month of August. It is the rainiest day in Sioux Falls since June 12!
Rain will start to come to an end tonight, mainly between midnight and 3 am and that will keep things very cloudy across the area. Clouds should trap in a little bit of the warmth, which will lead to low temperatures into the low to mid 60s, a few degrees above our average. Out into central South Dakota we will see some cooler air as clouds clear out quicker. We will be dealing with clouds along i-29 into the morning on Thursday, which might linger into the late morning. Clouds will keep us a bit cooler along and east of I-29 as we will stay into the upper 70s. However, central South Dakota should see a ton of sunshine which will bring in a little more warmth! High temperatures are expected to climb into the mid to upper 80s! The one issue will be the wind, with gusts of 15 to 30 mph from the northwest.
That summer-like weather will increase as we move into the weekend. Friday looks similar to Thursday temperature-wise but we will see some scattered showers and maybe even a few storms move through the area. Not expecting any of those to be severe or significant. As we move into the weekend we are expected a lot more of the heat! The 80s and 90s look to make a return, with the hottest temps into central South Dakota.
Storms move back into the picture late Sunday and overnight into Monday. Sadly that could mean we will be cloudy during the Solar Eclipse, so fingers crossed that things change!
