Daily Forecast

From Meteorologist Eric Gardner:

A Few Isolated Thunderstorms!

Isolated storms are possible again today, with one or two producing hail this afternoon. Friday will be a dry day. Temperatures will continue to be above normal through the end of the week.

Saturday is the day we're watching to be a potentially big severe weather day for our area! All the ingredients necessary for severe weather may come together - moisture, instability, wind shear, etc. - so that numerous severe storms with large hail, damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes on the plains will be possible. Make sure you have that KOTA Weather App downloaded to keep you informed!

We're still looking at much cooler temperatures next week along with some chances for showers and thunderstorms.
