It’s a very cool start to the morning in KELOLAND. Overnight lows have dropped as low as 36 in Lead and 38 in Custer. Lower to middle 40s have been common in the plains of western South Dakota, with upper 40s and lower 50s in the east. A pleasant day is expected across KELOLAND with afternoon temperatures in the 70s.
Another cool night is forecast tonight with lows returning to the upper 40s to lower 50s. This will set the stage for more 70s tomorrow, just a few degrees warmer in most locations. That will be the trend for the rest of the week, a little warmer each day.
Chances of rain look minimal in most areas the next few days. Some isolated rain is possible in the Black Hills tonight and tomorrow. Otherwise, a disturbance this weekend may trigger some chance of rain in the north on Saturday and into southeastern KELOLAND by Sunday. The chances of rain are at 20%.
Much warmer weather is likely early next week. The latest data is very aggressive on bringing heat back to KELOLAND with widespread 90s and lower 100s by Monday. We’ll continue to watch the numbers as the weather pattern makes a big shift toward the end of the 7 day forecast
