High pressure has settled behind a cold front and it has allowed high temperatures to cool closer than average. Many locations will reach the upper seventies and lower eighties later this afternoon.
Clear skies will continue this evening and tonight as temperatures eventually fall to the upper forties in northern KELOLAND to the lower fifties for everyone else.
Thursday will be mostly sunny and pleasant with highs in the seventies to lower eighties. There’s a slight chance for rain in western South Dakota late in the afternoon and evening. These light showers will slowly move east into central and eastern KELOLAND Thursday night and Friday. As of now, the rain amounts will stay very light with many locations receiving less than a tenth of an inch. With mostly cloudy skies, temperatures will be cooler on Friday with some areas in eastern KELOLAND stuck in the sixties.
Temperatures will slowly warm this weekend and into next week. Upper eighties and lower nineties will return to western and central South Dakota early next week.
