SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -- We are yet again continuing the mild stretch of weather across our region, but while the wind has been lighter today it’s going to pick up tonight and into Thursday morning.

Combining the dry conditions with the stronger wind speeds, we want to alert you to a potential fire danger across the area on Thursday as wind gusts will be over 40 mph at times. As a cold front moves through, temperatures will be falling throughout the day. High temperatures should stay in the 60s for most of us through Thursday and will be reached by the late morning and early afternoon. We’ll cool to the 40s/50s for highs on Friday with the return of the sunshine.

We’ll head into a pleasant weekend with highs remaining in the 50s with sunshine. There will be some changes to alert you to as we head toward Thanksgiving and the first will be some rain chances on Monday and then looking at temperatures falling as we approach the holiday. Temperatures by Thanksgiving will fall to the 20s/30s for highs.
