A Red Flag Warning was issued for most of the region this afternoon and is set to expire this evening. High gusty winds and low humidity have caused conditions to be right for dangerous fire behavior.
The high gusty winds we’ve been seeing today will continue tonight for much of eastern KELOLAND. Overnight temperatures cooling to the 40s across the region.
Sunday will start off the same as today however; a weak cold front will keep temperatures a little cooler for much of the area. Afternoon temperatures in the 50s for the west, 60s for central and northeast South Dakota, while the southeast will still reach the low to mid-70s. This front will bring a chance for late afternoon showers and storms to southeastern KELOLAND as well as a few showers for the west.
Sunday night, the rain and clouds will move out of the area leaving behind clear skies. Overnight temperatures bottoming out in the mid-30s to low 40s.
The next work week has an overall cooling trend, highs starting the week in the 60s but slowly cooling to the 50s by the end of the week. There is also a chance for showers and storms in the middle of the week.
