We’re entering a quieter stretch this week, especially after this morning’s fog clears. A quick break in the clouds over central South Dakota was all the fog needed to develop. We also saw some very thin and light snow showers in northern South Dakota this morning. This snow and the fog should be gone by noon. However, if northeast winds stick around at all today, fog could be a nuisance.
More clouds last for today, and we can’t seem to shake them for much of the early week. There will be a slow and steady warming trend through Friday for most of us. Rapid City will get the most out of this, with highs nearing 70 by late week.
The work-weeks’s best chance of rain comes tomorrow evening into early Tuesday. This starts in far NW South Dakota and will progress off to the east during the overnight. Not only will this be light, but most computer models push this into North Dakota just before reaching Aberdeen. Still, areas like Mobridge could see some light rains.
The blocking pattern giving us little active weather will slowly break down later in the week. We’ll receive a little bit more warmth but very little chance of additional rain.
A cold front comes late Friday, knocking Saturday’s high down (especially West River). We’re keeping an isolated chance of rain in for Rapid City next Saturday, but that’s still a long way out.
