.DISCUSSION...

Breezy southerly winds will develop today as hot air moves back into
the region. Relative humidity will approach 20 percent over south
central South Dakota, thus prompting very high fire danger. Higher
humidity in the 40s will be found for eastern South Dakota and west
central Minnesota. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected
to move east across central South Dakota this morning, then into
eastern portions of the region by this afternoon.

On Tuesday, a cold front will move south through the area and switch
winds to the north or northeast. Hot temperatures will continue as
relative humidity drops into the 20s across south central South
Dakota, with higher 30s and 40s elsewhere. Strong to severe storms
are also possible Tuesday afternoon and evening, mainly for eastern
portions of the region.
