Hot and Humid with Scattered Labor Day Weekend Storms

Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Liz Whalley on Friday, September 4 at 6:23 PM

We had a few showers and a rumbles of thunder move through the area this morning and early afternoon. Since then skies have begun to clear on out, with clear skies in the west and partly cloudy off to the east. Warm and very sticky outside, dewpoints this afternoon are in the low 70s.

A warm start to our Saturday with overnight lows in the upper 60s and low 70s. Scattered rain and thunderstorms are possible across the region, mainly in the afternoon and evening. One or two could be severe, but we are looking at very heavy rainfall with some storms. Saturday will be another warm and humid day as well. Temperatures in the mid 80s to low 90s with dewpoints soaring into the low 70s again. Keep hydrated if you have any outdoor plans this weekend.

Scattered storms continue Saturday night into Sunday morning. Sunday will be another warm and but not as humid day. Then from Labor Day through the rest of the week temperatures will take a slide in the 70s and the humidity will take a vacation as well.

Hot and Humid with Scattered Labor Day Weekend Storms

I don't know about you, but to me it feels like we've had more summer this past week than we've had all summer long. It is going to be another warm and sticky day as high temperatures warm back into the upper 80s. The dew point will be back in the low 70s and that means the heat index will, once again, reach the mid 90s in many places this afternoon. Scattered thunderstorms are possible across central and northern South Dakota later today into this evening. One or two storms could become severe across extreme northeastern South Dakota and west central Minnesota later today. The main threat will be large hail and strong straight-line wind gusts.
