Partly cloudy skies in eastern KELOLAND will slowly go away as the sun sets this evening. Clouds will remain in central and western South Dakota through the night with isolated showers and thundershowers possible in the Hills. Temperatures will fall to the fifties in central and eastern KELOLAND to near sixty in the west.
High pressure will still be in control of the weather for Friday. This means dry skies and temperatures in the seventies to lower eighties in eastern KELOLAND. Middle eighties will be in central South Dakota and the low nineties in the west.
Our next chance for rain will occur over the weekend. This is when low pressure will move through South Dakota and Nebraska. This low will spark showers and storms in western South Dakota during the day Saturday. The rain will move into central and northeast South Dakota Saturday evening and into all of eastern KELOLAND Saturday night into Sunday. Rain amounts will vary from a couple hundredths to as much as a half inch or more this weekend. The best locations to get more than a half will be in southeast KELOLAND (from Marshall to Mitchell and southeast). Temperatures will be cooler this weekend with highs in the middle to upper seventies in eastern KELOLAND on Saturday, middle eighties in the central and west. Expect low to middle seventies in eastern South Dakota for highs on Sunday with eighties in central South Dakota and lower nineties returning to the west.
We’ll return to a little of the summer heat next week with highs returning to the eighties in eastern KELOLAND with nineties in central and western South Dakota.
