SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- Most of the Dakota News Now viewing area is experiencing some sort of a drought as rain chances have been few and far between. We’ll be seeing chances picking up this week as a more active weather pattern begins to set up across our region.

Some spotty showers and storms will be possible for Tuesday with highs in the mid to upper 70′s to even near 80 degrees in places like Pierre. Most of the day will be sunny as this will be similar to what we saw at the end of last week. Better chances for rain will move in and be more widespread for Wednesday and Thursday. High temperatures, despite some extra clouds and on and off again rain, will still be in the 70′s to even some lower 80′s in western South Dakota.

Heading into Friday, yet again some spotty showers and storms will be possible. We’ll end the week with highs around 80 degrees across the region. It’s looking like our threat for severe weather in the short term will be on the lower end, but certainly some isolated severe storms for some quarter sized hail and brief strong wind gusts will be likely with some of the storms.

Storm chances will continue periodically throughout the weekend with highs remaining in the mid to upper 70′s on Saturday, but then cool to the upper 60′s to near 70 on Sunday. Stay with your First Alert Weather Team as we track the storms in the coming days!
