Will This be the Warmest Last Week of August on Record?

With two more days of heat expected, it appears quite probable that the final week of August will go down as one of  the top three warmest on record.  In fact, the mean temperature (average of the max and min for the day) is forecast to be up to a degree warmer than the number one warmest stretch on record for Huron, but will proabably be closer to a second place for Sioux City and Mitchell.  Unless conditions turn out warmer than expected, it looks like Sioux Falls may come up with a third place warm last 7 days of August.  Look for periodic updates to this headline as the forecast changes, and more high and low temperatures are determined.
