KSFY SEVERE WEATHER CENTER
A Wonderfully Unhumid Day
Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Shawn Cable on Wednesday, July 23 at 9:01 AM
I don't think "unhumid" is actually a word, but it should be now that we've kicked the humidity to the curb. Today will be mostly sunny, slightly cooler and a lot less humid than yesterday. Afternoon high temps will range from the low 80s in Sioux Falls and Aberdeen to the mid to upper 80s across central South Dakota. The dew point has finally dropped out of the 60s and will hover in the mid to upper 50s throughout the day. Comfortably unhumid.
Later this afternoon and evening, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop across western and central South Dakota. Storms will move east overnight, making it to I-29 after midnight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible throughout the day tomorrow. As of right now, I do not expect widespread severe weather, however, there could be a few stronger storms with large hail or damaging straight-line wind gusts. Some places could also get one-quarter to one-half inch of rain.
After tomorrow, it looks like our weather will be dry and pleasant through the weekend and into next week. Friday and Saturday will be mostly sunny with high temps in the mid 80s, Sunday will be mostly sunny with cooler highs in the upper 70s.
