KSFY SEVERE WEATHER CENTER
Breezy with a Slight Chance of Storms
Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Shawn Cable on Thursday, July 24 at 9:03 AM
Today will be partly cloudy, breezy and a little more humid than yesterday with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible. As you can imagine, our main focus is on that chance of thunderstorms and whether or not they're actually going to develop later today. Our latest models are a bit wishy-washy with when, where and if storms will happen. As of right now, it appears that if storms do develop, it'll happen by early afternoon and again this evening. The threat for severe weather will be fairly low, although storms could bring some hail and strong straight-lined wind gusts. The exception to that will be north central and northwest South Dakota where a few severe storms will be possible later this morning and again this afternoon and evening. I'll be keeping a very close eye on the potential for storms throughout the day and will update as things develop.
After today, it'll be smooth sailing through the weekend and into next week. Friday and Saturday will be partly cloudy with high temps in the low to mid 80s, Sunday will be sunny and cooler with highs in the mid to upper 70s. For now, I'm keeping the 7 Day Forecast dry through the middle of next week, however, as we get closer I might have to add a chance of isolated thunderstorms to the middle of the week. I'll let you know how that goes.
