SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- The sunshine returned across the entire area with temperatures rebounding nicely as well. That trend is going to continue heading into Friday with more sunshine and high temperatures getting into the 80′s!

By Friday night, our first of what will be several disturbances moving through the area over the weekend will develop. Isolated storms will mainly impact western South Dakota, but some will move into central South Dakota before they weaken. Pierre has the best chance to see one of these storms. Heading into Saturday, we’ll begin the day with sunshine, but another round of storms will develop late that afternoon and into the evening.

There is a Slight Risk for severe weather on Saturday for portions of central and eastern South Dakota which is a level 2 out of 5. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be possible. After this clears out late Saturday night, another storm system will develop and this time out ahead of a cold front triggering another chance for severe weather Sunday evening once again in the eastern portions of the area.

As if that weren’t enough, Memorial Day Monday will present yet another chance for severe weather in the eastern parts of the area.
