Our sunny, warm trend will continue today, tomorrow and through the weekend. High temps will range from the upper 80s in Sioux Falls to the mid 90s across central South Dakota this afternoon. There will likely be a bit of haze in the sky at times today. That haze is smoke from all of the wildfires out west. The smoke won’t have much of an impact on our weather other than giving us beautiful, red/orange sunsets and perhaps limiting our afternoon high temperature by degree or two.
Tomorrow will be sunny and a bit warmer with highs reaching the upper 90s to near 100 degrees across much of central and western South Dakota. That trend will continue through the weekend with sunshine and highs in the 80s to 90s on both Saturday and Sunday.
Temperatures will cool slightly by early next week. Our next chance of showers and thunderstorms will roll in with a system Tuesday night into Wednesday. That’s almost a week away, I’ll have updates on the rain potential as we get closer.
