SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - We’re tracking a powerful cold front moving through the region. If you’re ready for cooler temperatures, you’ll enjoy what’s on the way for the rest of this week! Due to the dramatic temperature drop, we’re declaring Wednesday as a First Alert Weather Day.

While the cold front will move through initially dry, we’re tracking some spotty showers to move through areas mainly south of I-90 for Wednesday morning. There will be more sunshine in northern South Dakota on Wednesday compared to central and southern South Dakota. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 60s around the region. We’ll see a few more clouds around and keep this fall-like weather rolling right into Thursday, which just happens to be the first day of fall!

Thursday night, another burst of precipitation is on the way. This does look to impact the entire region from west to east. Rain will continue overnight Thursday into the first half of Friday. The football games Friday night look to be dry as the rain will clear out by then.

Over the weekend, we’ll warm up a bit with highs jumping back into the low to mid 70s with plenty of sunshine. Looking ahead to next week, it’s looking sunny and mild. Highs look to remain in the 70s across most of the region! It looks like we should stay dry next week, too.
