Temperatures will be closer to average this weekend with scattered showers and storms.
In the meantime, skies will remain mostly clear for much of KELOLAND this evening. The only exception will be the Hills of western South Dakota where there’s a twenty percent chance for scattered storms during the evening, but increasing to fifty percent tonight.
Some of those showers and storms will move into central and south central South Dakota late tonight. Lows will be in the lower sixties by daybreak.
Saturday will be partly sunny with scattered showers and storms. As of now, everyone has a thirty to forty percent chance at rain with temperatures close to average in central and western South Dakota to just below average along the James River and east.
The scattered rain will continue into Saturday night and Sunday morning, with decreasing chances at rain on Sunday. Sunday’s highs will be in the middle eighties in eastern South Dakota to near ninety in central and western KELOLAND.
Models are showing a northwest flow pattern for KELOLAND next week. This means, we’ll have to decrease the forecast highs by a couple of degrees as the heat will be suppressed to our south and southwest. Expect highs closer to average next week with the best chance for rain on Tuesday.
