Lingering clouds and chill have been a big story in the east today while blue skies have started to arrive West River. Tonight the big stories become the chill and fog. This weekend should be much nicer.
Winds will start to fade by later this evening. The light south wind coupled with eventually clearing skies and leftover moisture means a good likelihood of late night fog. The timing is the key with this chance of fog. Skies need to clear and winds need to be fairly light.
Even if fog doesn’t form near your house, you can expect a chilly start to Saturday morning. The pheasant opener should be very nice if you are out later in the day. Skies will clear and winds will be out of the south. Temperatures will be well above normal in the west and it should be among the nicest days all week.
By Sunday the next cold front will start pushing through KELOLAND. That will mean a big drop in Sunday’s highs for Rapid City and Pierre. The Black Hills will be even cooler but mainly dry. Sunday will be warmer in Sioux Falls, thanks to compressional warming just ahead of the cool-down. We’ve got a chance at some isolated rain in the Hills on Monday and Tuesday. A few locations at elevation could see some wintry mix. The better chance is next Thursday in many locations. Most computer models are not too excited on amounts this far out, though.
