Forecast: A Slight Mid-Week Cool Down
From KSFY Television Meteorologist Sam Gabrielli
Temperatures both today and Wednesday will take a step back after a brief Monday warm up. With an upper-level disturbance passing by from the north, today will be brought on by high temperatures in the upper 30s in northeast South Dakota. The rest of us will reach the 40° category. The wind will be the main story today, as several spots will see wind gusts clock in at 40 mph at times from the northwest. A stray rain shower or sprinkle may accompany northeast South Dakota today, but nonetheless we will stay dry, cool and windy.
The wind will dissipate in intensity tonight with overnight readings dropping into the 30s. A much quieter day is expected Wednesday because high pressure will shift in from the north, bringing light wind and warmer temperatures. Most of our region will be at or below 50° mid-week.
The end of the week will certainly queue the warm up! This mild air will situate itself just in time for the end of the week. Most spots will easily rise over 60° Thursday through Saturday. This is the perfect opportunity to get outside and make sure you get any outdoor tasks or activities done before more rain hits LATE in the 7-Day Forecast.
As mentioned, a strong storm system to our west will move in Sunday and into early next week. The path of this storm system is still a bit uncertain at this time. We will continue to monitor its track in the coming days, but it will bring moisture to most areas and temperatures will fall below normal.
