We have a cold front swinging through KELOLAND today and it has already sparked up some showers in eastern and western SD. With afternoon temperatures in the 60s to low 80s across the area, some thundershowers are certainly possible as there is plenty of heat energy in the atmosphere. The spotty showers in eastern SD will weaken as the sun goes down but the rain in the west will travel southeast through KELOLAND overnight so we’ll hold on to rain chances for southern KELOLAND, quiet skies in the north. Overnight lows in the 40s to near 50.
Showers look to move out of the area early Thursday, leaving behind another mostly sunny day. We’ll have a north breeze, so temperatures will cool back to the 60s.
Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy on Friday. Temperatures will cool back a little below-normal, into the upper 50s to low 60s. Late Friday night and Saturday morning we’ll have our best chance at a more significant rainfall. There might even be some snow mixed in with the snow Saturday morning, even accumulating snow is possible in the north!
Clouds should break up Saturday afternoon, with highs in the 40s to 50s. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy again on Sunday, with another chance at rain or rain/snow mix, and highs in the 40s to 50s.
Next week continues the cooler than average weather with projected highs in the 40s to 50s with more precip chances midweek.
