A Warm, Humid Week Ahead

Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Liz Whalley on Monday, August 31 at 6:42 PM

Can you believe it is the last day of August?! In the Meteorological world, it's actually the last day of summer. But not to worry, it still will be feeling like summer through the week, sunshine, warmth and yes, humidity.

A weak cold front is moving through the area this afternoon/evening and it's sparked a few light showers across northern and central SD. As the front continues east, all that moisture is starting to fizzle out. Tonight we'll see increasing clouds in the east, with decreasing clouds out west. Overnight lows in the mid 50s to mid 60s.

The rest of the week will continue to feel like summer. Good news for all those wanting to enjoy the last few pools days before they close! Highs will be in the upper 80 to low/mid 90s through the beginning of the weekend. But it will be feeling a bit humid out there, especially Wednesday where we could see heat index values over 100 in central SD.

Rain and storm chances return Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures take a slide back into the 70s by the end of the Holiday weekend.

New SPC Severe Risk Category Definitions

Updated: 04/02/2015 - About 6 months ago the Storm Prediction Center changed the way they categorize severe weather risk. Here are the official definitions of the new categories:

A Warm, Humid Week Ahead

The final day of August is going to feel like… August. We will have plenty of sunshine, high temps in the mid 80s (which is about 5 degrees above average for this time of year,) and plenty of our key ingredient for a sticky summer day: Humidity. Yep, in addition to high temps in the mid 80s, the dew point will be in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees this afternoon. That will put the heat index in the upper 80s to low 90s. Kids that don't head back to class until after Labor Day are in luck. We just might have some of the best pool days of the summer this week because we're gonna keep this train running for a few more days. In fact, tomorrow and Wednesday will be warmer and the humidity will be even higher than today.
