A Sunny, Warm Weekend Ahead

Today will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms, but the weather is looking great for the upcoming weekend.

A system to our south will bring clouds and a chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon into this evening. The best chance of rain will be from Sioux Falls to the south and east. As of right now, the severe threat is very low with increasing potential for severe weather south of our KSFY coverage area across portions of Iowa and Nebraska. The wind will be fairly light today with high temperatures reaching the upper 60s this afternoon.

Further north and west there will be more sunshine and that means warmer temperatures. Highs will reach the low to mid 70s across much of central and northern South Dakota today.

After today, it’ll be smooth sailin’ through the weekend. There will be plenty of sunshine with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s on Friday and Saturday, slightly cooler highs in the low to mid 70s by Sunday. The dry, mild weather pattern will continue into early next week.
