High pressure will remain in control of the weather through the next couple of days. This means we can expect dry skies through at least Thursday. Temperatures will remain above average with highs in the seventies and eighties during that time, but winds will also be strong. South winds will increase throughout the day Wednesday and average fifteen to thirty miles per hour during the afternoon. Highs will warm to the eighties in many locations with lower nineties in western South Dakota. The low nineties will push in central South Dakota on Thursday and Friday.
Low pressure will move into KELOLAND on Friday. This will allow for thicker clouds and developing showers and storms. The best chance to see the storms will be late afternoon and evening, not everyone will get wet.
Cooler temperatures will arrive for the weekend along with scattered rain. Rain chances will increase as the day goes on for Saturday but we’ll have drying conditions on Sunday. Eastern KELOLAND will have the best chance for the rain. Isolated showers will still be possible in eastern KELOLAND with cooler temperatures. Highs will fall to the seventies to near eighty on Saturday to the sixties and seventies in Sunday.
