For your Friday, you can expect mostly cloudy to cloudy skies with periods of rain. The rain in central and western South Dakota will move eastward throughout the day. Generalized rainfall totals are expected to range from around a few hundredths of an inch to near ½ inch. The main concern with rainfall totals is how dry the air is, so it’s possible that a lot of the rain could evaporate before hitting the ground. Friday afternoon temperatures will be cooler due to the clouds, rain, and northerly winds; only reaching the 50s and 60s.
If you have Friday evening plans, be sure to have our Storm Tracker app so you can check the latest radar image as the rain and clouds will be on the move out late tonight. Overnight temperatures will cool down to the 40s.
The weekend will bring in dry air and comfortable temperatures. Skies will be partly sunny with highs this weekend in the 70s.
Temperatures will continue to warm into next week with highs returning to the upper 70s to low 80s after midweek.
