SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - High pressure remains in control over our area keeping our weather quiet with sunshine. With the heating of the day, we may have some storm chances around and just after sunset for parts of South Dakota starting Friday night. Breezy conditions will persist in central and western South Dakota.

Due to the excessive heat beginning this weekend and continuing through early next week, those days will be deemed First Alert Weather Days. Some portions of central and western South Dakota will get to the triple digits and further east we’ll get to the 90s and even some triple digit temperatures. Excessive Heat Watches have been issued for much of central and eastern South Dakota for this weekend and Monday. Planning ahead, make sure if you’re going to be doing a lot of outdoor activities this weekend to be prepared.

We’re tracking some more storm chances on Monday although it doesn’t appear that we’ll have to worry about much for severe weather at this point. Temperatures will begin to cool slightly throughout the week, but we’ll still be in the 80s for much of the week. We’ll be back in the 90′s by the end of next week. Chances for precipitation will be at a minimum as only isolated showers and storms will be possible by the end of next week.
