The weekend is looking very warm with highs in the thirties and lower forties in eastern KELOLAND to the middle forties to near fifty in central South Dakota and the fifties to near sixty in the west. As of now, Rapid City’s high on Saturday is 55!
There will be a quick shot of cooler air on Monday, but most locations will still stay slightly above average with highs in the thirties. Much of next week is also looking warm and dry with highs in the thirties, forties, and fifties.
One more night with below zero temperatures, then things will start to warm. Tonight’s lows will fall below zero in eastern KELOLAND, but central and western South Dakota will stay above zero as skies will slowly become partly cloudy. Warmer weather will creep into KELOLAND tomorrow with highs in the teens and twenties in eastern South Dakota to the low and middle thirties in the central and west. Winds will also increase during the day from the west at about ten to twenty miles per hour. Winds may be a little breezier on Friday, but temperatures will also be at or above average. Lower thirties are still in the forecast for eastern South Dakota on Friday while upper thirties to near forty will be the highs in Pierre and Chamberlain. Rapid City will jump to the middle forties on Friday.
