SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- Strong to severe thunderstorms tracked across the eastern parts of the area Sunday evening.

We had two clusters of storms, one that moved through northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota while another one moved through Lake, Moody and Brookings counties. The cluster to the northwest produced hail ranging from nickel to ping pong ball size hail with hail as big as 2″ in diameter south of Madison. The secondary cluster produced some tree and shingle damage along with broken power poles near Worthing, Doon and Rock Rapids.

The threat for severe weather will diminish by midnight, and the rest of our Sunday night will be quiet with a mostly to partly cloudy sky and gusty winds. Some showers are possible in northern and central South Dakota on the back side of the system. There will be some light snow and wintry mix showers snow in western South Dakota, which could accumulate 1-3 inches. Some flurries or light snow showers are possible in northern and central South Dakota, but little to no accumulation is expected.

Monday will feature much colder temperatures with highs in the 40s and 50s, a strong west to west-northwest wind and a few lingering showers.

After that, we’ll have seasonable temperatures and we will dry out for a while aside from a chance of showers Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening
