SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - We had a tail of two weekends... warm and steamy with widely scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday and plenty of sunshine with cooler and less humid conditions Sunday.

The evening hours tonight will remain quiet but chances for showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast beginning overnight and will continue through Tuesday afternoon. Rain chances Sunday night remain west of the James River and will slowly progress east throughout the day Monday and Tuesday. While severe weather is not expected, rainfall totals will not be impressive once again as most areas will see up to a quarter of an inch. Some locations in southwest South Dakota could see up to an inch. Expect highs in the 70s and 80s both Monday and Tuesday.

Sunshine returns midweek and will continue through next weekend. Rain chances will be sparse through the end of next weekend but could return to kick off August. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s to mid 80s through Friday, but heat levels start to increase next weekend into the first few days of August, with highs returning to the upper 80s and 90s. Long term outlooks continue to indicate a warmer and drier than average pattern.
