Heavy Rain Possible This Weekend

Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Shawn Cable on Friday, August 22 at 7:01 AM

If you're going to be out and about this weekend, you are going to need your rain gear. Heavy rain is possible especially late tonight into tomorrow and again tomorrow afternoon and night. I do think there will be some dry time, but there will be plenty of opportunities to use your umbrella, raincoats, etc.

Today will be partly cloudy, warm and humid with high temps in the mid to upper 80s. The heat index will reach the low 90s today.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop across western South Dakota late this afternoon into this evening and move east overnight. Heavy rain will be possible late tonight and early tomorrow morning, with showers and thunderstorms redeveloping late tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow night. 1 to 2 inches or more of rain is possible in some places. In fact, some of our models are suggesting that there could be places that get 3+ inches of rain.

While the threat will for severe weather will be fairly minimal throughout the weekend, there could be a few storms that produce large hail or damaging straight-line wind gusts. Be sure to have a means of staying in touch with severe weather this weekend. As always, I'll be watching the weather closely and tweeting any watches and warnings that are issued.
