Rain Chances Through the Weekend
Mild Temperatures Included
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- After a few days of dry and quiet weather, the weather pattern is going to become more active just in time for this evening and heading into the weekend. Unlike last weekend, the threat for severe weather won’t be present and as a matter of fact cooler than normal temperatures will be favored.
Through the weekend, most areas should see between a tenth and a half inch of rain with some spots seeing over a half inch. The heavier totals look to favor western South Dakota and areas along and south of Highway 14, which is good considering this is where the drought conditions are the worst.
Temperatures over the weekend will be in the mid 60s to mid 70s, which will run 5-15 degrees below normal. Lows overnight will mostly be in the 50s with some nights falling into the 40s. We’ll be able to give the air conditioners a nice break through the next several days.
Heading into next week, we keep the chance of scattered rain showers in the forecast nearly every day next week. A few thunderstorms are possible as well, but it appears the severe weather threat is very low at this time. Rain chances will become more widely scattered late next week. Temperatures will remain below average with highs in the 60s and 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s.
