SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- There is a Slight Risk for severe weather this evening in portions of central and western South Dakota.

Storms will develop tonight and move east overnight. As the storms move into eastern South Dakota, they will be weakening similar to what we saw last night. Our active pattern will continue because we’re tracking another risk for severe weather on Sunday as well. These storms will once again develop during the evening hours and move east overnight Sunday into the 4th of July morning.

The main risk for these storms will be for large hail and damaging wind gusts. The tornado threat is rather low. Temperatures on Sunday will warm back up into the upper 80s northeast and lower 90s elsewhere. Once again, there is a risk for severe weather for the 4th of July and as you’d guess the main timing would be during the evening hours. In addition to the chances for thunderstorms, we’re going to be heading back up into the lower to mid 90s.

Chances for showers and thunderstorms won’t end there as isolated storms will be possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. As temperatures cool slightly to the mid 80s, we’ll rebound back into the 90s to the triple digits by next week.
