A weak cold front will slide across KELOLAND this evening and tonight. It’s already responsible for scattered storms in the southern Hills, but more storms can fire in north central and northeast South Dakota after 5:00.
We’ll see if the storms can stick together as they move east/southeast this evening and tonight, but they will be battling a strong cap which is in place for much of South Dakota. We’ll have at least a twenty percent chance to get wet during that time.
After the front passes, the air will feel a little drier and temperatures will be slightly cooler for Friday. Highs will be in the eighties and low nineties on Friday, which is still slightly above average. Winds will be from the northwest at five to fifteen miles per hour.
Saturday will be a “cool” day with highs in the low eighties in eastern South Dakota. Central and western KELOLAND will still have highs in the middle to upper eighties.
While much of the day will be dry, showers and storms will develop in the evening and overnight. Some of the rain will linger into Sunday morning. Sunday’s temperatures will be slightly warmer with highs returning to the middle eighties in eastern South Dakota to the low nineties in central and western KELOLAND.
Widespread nineties will return for next week.
