Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered across KOTA Territory today as a weakening upper level low moves across the area. We won't all see storms, but those who do will experience locally heavy rainfall. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for many areas this afternoon into this evening.

Low Tonight: 62
High Wednesday: 85
Winds: N 5-15 mph

Another small storm could bring a few storms late Wednesday night. Then another chance of storms arrives this weekend.
