The chances of rain will continue in eastern KELOLAND today, mainly east of Sioux Falls for the afternoon. Highs will mainly be in the 70s, with upper 60s in Rapid City. Breezy NW winds will be common with gusts over 30mph West River.
Much cooler weather is likely tonight and tomorrow with lows near 40 in Rapid City. Highs will only be in the upper 60s tomorrow for both Sioux Falls and Aberdeen. This will set the stage for very chilly weather Friday night, with low in the 30s. There could be some frost in the northeast, something we’ll keep an eye on.
A warmer trend will be ahead this weekend, but chances of rain look low. The next storms system will affect KELOLAND late Sunday into Monday.
