SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- The heat is building back into central and western South Dakota today and that has prompted Heat Advisories to get issued. We’re also tracking the chance for some isolated showers and storms this evening, but the severe weather threat is very low.

Because of the heat returning on Friday and the chance for severe weather that evening, we’ve declared Friday as another First Alert Weather Day. Highs will be in the 90s and 100s. There is a Marginal Risk for severe weather on Friday with the main threats being for 60 mph wind gusts and quarter sized hail.

There will be some lingering showers and storms on Saturday across the area and it’s going to be much cooler. Highs on Saturday will only be in the upper 70s the lower 80s! Sunday we’ll all get to the lower to mid 80s.

By next week, the heat ramps back up once again as highs rise into the mid to upper 90s by the middle to end of next week with little precipitation in sight.
