SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- The heat and muggy conditions are going to begin to subside tonight along with the wind dying down. The wind will start to become more northeasterly which will help to bring in some drier air to the region, but temperatures won’t be dramatically cooling down just yet.

Saturday will still be dry with a mix of clouds and sunshine. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast Saturday night along and west of the Missouri River. Those chances increase for everyone heading into Sunday. Weekend highs will be in the 80s to low 90s with lows in the 60s. The best chances for rain will be in central and western South Dakota along with areas south of I-90.

Slight chances of showers and thunderstorms will continue through the beginning of next week, but unfortunately it’s not showing signs of promise in terms of bringing some decent rainfall accumulations to the area. We’ll cool down to the upper 70s to the lower 80s for the middle of next week, but then more mid to upper 80s are on the way by the end of next week.
