SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A cold front sparked strong storms in eastern KELOLAND yesterday afternoon, but behind the front we have more stable air in place. Even though we’ve had a couple of spotty showers this morning and afternoon, that stable air is helping to keep the chance for thunderstorms away.

It’s something we haven’t had for awhile in KELOLAND. I’m talking about the chance for severe thunderstorms in KELOLAND, it seems we’ve had several days with at least a chance for severe weather.

I did some checking through the archives and found that we’ve had some sort of severe outlook in KELOLAND from May 29th to June 4th, a solid week’s worth. The severe storm outlooks are issued by the Storm Prediction Center located in Norman, Oklahoma. Meteorologists there monitor the weather and forecast models to come out with different categories for severe weather.

They range from the low end of marginal risk, meaning isolated severe weather is possible to the high risk. Meaning long-lived, very widespread severe weather can be expected. But with northerly winds dominating our forecast for the next several days, severe weather will be hard to come by. So we’ll put the chances for severe weather on the back burner, for now.
