Clouds will slowly go away as we go through the evening. Many locations will have a partly cloudy to mostly clear sky tonight with lows falling to the forties to near fifty. Winds will be light from the north.
High pressure overhead will give us sunshine Friday morning, but clouds will increase as we go through the afternoon. It will remain dry with highs a little warmer than today. Eastern KELOLAND will have highs in the low seventies with middle and upper seventies in central and western South Dakota. As high pressure slowly moves east, southeast winds will kick in but they’ll stay light.
The southeast winds will increase on Saturday and it will help bring in moisture. It should feel a little humid for Saturday in eastern KELOLAND, while northwest winds in central and western South Dakota bring in dry air. There will be a couple of chances for rain that day.
The first wave will bring a round of rain in the morning. I’d say from seven to eleven will be the best chance for rain along and east of the James River Valley.
The second wave will bring rain to the same locations after three or four o’clock.
Severe weather will also be possible during the afternoon and evening, mainly in southeast South Dakota; large hail should be the main threat.
As low pressure slowly exits eastern KELOLAND on Sunday, mostly cloudy skies will be likely with lingering light showers. Central and western South Dakota will have dry skies that day.
Another storm system will move through KELOLAND Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Temperatures will be closer to average through the first half of next week.
