Showers and storms are developing along a cold front in east central South Dakota. A few of these storms are strong to severe. This evening the storms will sweep into eastern South Dakota, including Sioux Falls. A few of these storms could be severe so make sure to have your KDLT weather app at the ready. The main threat with these storms will be hail, high winds, and lightning. A tornado is not probable tonight, but one or two cannot be ruled out.
When looking at the temperatures across the region it's obvious where the cold front is sitting. Behind the front temperatures are in the upper 60's and 70's. However, places where the front hasn't reached yet are in the mid to upper 80's. Dew points are also high this afternoon in the 60's and 70's. If you're outside make sure to drink plenty of water.
Tonight temperatures will lower into the upper 50's and lower 60's after the front moves through.
Tomorrow temperatures will be much cooler in the upper 70's over most of the Sioux Empire with lower 80's possible in the southwestern portions of the region. It will be a great day to go outside with a few clouds scattered across the area.
The rest of this week looks fairly nice as well with temperatures in the mid 80's in the east. However, as high pressure settles in temperatures will rise in central South Dakota. Some places may even reach the lower 90's out west. Make sure to continue to drink plenty of water this week and wear sunscreen. School may be starting soon, but the hot weather isn't quite finished yet!
