Sunday Early Evening Forecast Update – 5/8/2022
Meteorologist Erik Dean gives us the details about the upcoming work week, and what you need to know to plan ahead.
Good Sunday Afternoon everyone, hope you had a wonderful Sunday, and a wonderful Mother’s Day. As we discussed earlier this morning, yesterday was just straight up gangbusters in the weather department. Since that post, this map has changed. Here is the latest Storm Report map showing where we had the Funnel Clouds & even 2 tornadoes, in Columbia, and in Aberdeen.
The majority of South Dakota is under a Wind Advisory, with a High Wind Watch just to the south of us in Nebraska & Wyoming. It’ll start at 9:00 AM MDT Monday, and goes until 7:00 PM MDT.
We’ll start the clock and stop it at 11:00 PM Tonight when East River will start to see the heavy wind first. Chamberlain will already be at 23 MPH West River will still have a light wind until tomorrow morning.
By 9:00 AM we’ll see the wind start to pick up West River. Rapid City will have winds near 20 MPH, while East River will see sustained winds between 20 & 30 MPH
Then by Tomorrow evening it’ll start to die down again West River while Sisseton will see sustained winds near 33 MPH
Then in the overnight hours, going into Tuesday Morning, it finally exits the state and calm winds prevail yet again.
I am keeping the precipitation chances in the forecast. Temps will stay in the 50s & 60s for the most part. Depending on the precipitation and cloud cover, some places across NE Wyoming may not even reach the 50s.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
