SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- Some beneficial rainfall fell over the past three days and some areas picked up much more than others.

Areas in and around Sioux Falls received anywhere from 3-6″ of rain Sunday morning and the Sioux Falls airport recording 5.41″, which ended up breaking numerous records in the process.

Some scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to end from west to east and should come to an end for all by midnight. Additional rainfall will range from a couple hundredths to as much as two tenths of an inch. Lows fall back into the upper 40s to mid 50s, so a great night to give the A/C a break.

Aside from areas of fog Monday morning, Monday itself looks great with plenty of sunshine, low humidity, light winds and highs in the 70s and 80s.

The dry weather will continue throughout the week and heat levels tick back up as well with highs returning to the 80s and 90s each day. Portions of central and western South Dakota could see highs pushing towards 100 by late week.

Temperatures fall back to the 80s to low 90s heading into next weekend with a mix of clouds and sunshine and only isolated chances of showers and thunderstorms.
