Expect a busy weekend of weather across KELOLAND…with the potential for flooding rains, hail, and tornadoes.  First, we have a tornado watch in effect for parts of southern KELOLAND until 10pm. Earlier this evening, the National Weather Service extended the watch to the north to include areas up to Huron.We also have flood watches in effect for much of southeast KELOLAND from Saturday night to Monday morning.  A slow-moving cold front combined with upper level winds in the jet stream will produce several rounds of thunderstorms over the next few days.  Severe weather will be possible, but heavy rain may turn out to be the biggest story.  This set-up of weather will make widespread 2-5" of rain likely by early next week.The rainfall will be heavy in the west and the east.  We do have the heaviest bulls-eye over Sioux Falls and the southeast…with the potential of 4 inches or more.  Obviously, this would cause flooding problems and persons living in flood-prone areas should stay advised of the latest watches and warnings.
