SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- Cooler temperatures have been sticking around especially in eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota and Iowa. Expect clear conditions to continue through tonight and into Wednesday morning.

It’ll be a chilly night tonight with a clear to partly cloudy and a light wind turning from the east and northeast to the south and southeast overnight thanks to high pressure sliding east. Winds will be light to calm east and 5-15 mph in central South Dakota. Lows drop back into the 30s and 40s, and there’s a chance for areas of frost along and east of the James River with the highest chance along and east of I-29.

By the end of the week, temperatures will begin to warm up slightly into the 70s east and 80s west. Clouds will build in for Friday but we’ll avoid rain during the football games on Friday night. Unfortunately due to the breezy conditions, we’ll need to monitor for the potential for fire weather concerns yet again.

As far as rain chances go, a weak system could bring a few isolated showers Friday night and also a slight chance of rain is possible Sunday, but unfortunately, most models show these chances to remain isolated at best and rain totals will remain under a tenth of an inch over the next seven days.
