Very Windy with Scattered Thunderstorms

Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Shawn Cable on Wednesday, April 23 at 7:02 AM

Before I start with today's weather, I want to remind you that today is the day of the test tornado drill in South Dakota. The National Weather Service will issue a test Tornado WATCH at 10 AM, followed by a test Tornado WARNING at 10:15 AM. Sirens will sound, weather radios and apps on your phone will likely activate when the test Tornado WARNING is issued. This is part of Severe Weather Awareness Week and a good opportunity to practice your severe weather safety procedures.

Today will be mostly cloudy and very windy with scattered thunderstorms this morning and again this afternoon and evening. High temps will reach the mid to upper 60s. I'm not too terribly concerned about a widespread severe weather outbreak today, however, one or two storms could be strong with the main threat being large hail.

A Wind Advisory is in effect for much of southeast South Dakota, southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM today. Strong northwest wind gusts to 45 mph are possible.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will end late tonight, tomorrow will be partly cloudy, breezy and cooler with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Temperatures will gradually drop through the rest of the week, with highs in the 50s by Saturday. Sunday and Monday will be cold and showery with highs only reaching the mid to upper 40s in most places.
