Skies will remain mostly clear this evening and tonight with temperatures falling to the thirties by Thursday morning. It will be warmer Thursday with temperatures returning to the upper sixties and middle seventies. We will remain that way until the second half of the weekend, that’s when I expect cooler air to move in from the north to allow for thicker clouds and cooler temperatures. Numbers will slide back to the sixties on Sunday with slight chances for rain in northeast and western South Dakota.
Next week will start a little wet and cool. Low pressure will move in from the southwest on Monday; it will generate scattered showers during the day. Temperatures will take another hit Tuesday with afternoon highs only in the upper forties and fifties. Some areas in eastern South Dakota will wake up to temperatures in the twenties that day too.
The string of dry weather will continue for the next several days, and warmer weather will soon move back in.
