July 28—Much of eastern South Dakota received at least a half inch of rain from an overnight storm, though some areas got double that total.

According to the National Weather Service, 0.56 inch was recorded at the Aberdeen Regional Airport. Mobridge reported 0.72 inch, Watertown had 0.78 inch, and Sisseton recorded 1.01 inches.

The NWS reported that the highest wind gust in the area was at Craven Corner, 5 miles east of Ipswich, with a 56 mph gust. There were some tree branches down around Aberdeen, but there were no serious reports of damage, according to the NWS. Loud thunder and heavy rain, however, could have startled some sleepers.

Today’s forecast calls for a windy, cloudy morning that should clear up by the afternoon. Highs are expected to reach the upper 70s. Wind gusts from 20 to 30 mph can be expected this afternoon. There is a wind advisory in effect today from 1-10:00 p.m.
