National Weather Service warn of possible smoke conditions & reflect back on last week’s rain

ABERDEEN, S.D.(DRGNews)- Some smoke from Canadian wildfires in has settled into South Dakota again, but it’s not as thick as it was when smoke covered the state last month.

Kelly Serr (sare) is the Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Aberdeen. She says the smoke will likely linger for the next few days, especially on the eastern side of the state.

Parts of South Dakota got some badly needed rain over the past week, but Serr says some parts that needed it most, did not.

She says the western and north central parts of the state saw some extreme rainfall amounts.

Aberdeen received 1.77 inches of rain last week.
