Forecast: One Last Mild Day Today Along With Morning Rain For Some
As a cold front passed through from the north last night, it ushered in some light rainfall for spots along and south of I-90. The light rain will continue for spots along and south of I-90 through the morning hours. As we head into the afternoon, temperatures will warm well into the 60s and low 70s with a mostly sunny sky expected. There may be another chance for a stray shower or storm across the southeast this evening, but it shouldn't be a deal breaker.
A Red Flag Warning is in effect through the afternoon hours today for much of Northeast South Dakota. Low relative humidity, sunny conditions, and a breezy northwest wind will all contribute to a risk for fire danger. Make sure you avoid any sort of outdoor burning!
A mostly clear sky and light wind will be with us tonight and low temperatures will enter the 30s in several locations. The wind will be quiet on Friday, but there will be a lot more cloud cover to end the work week. High temperatures on Friday will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. As a new low-pressure center develops to our west, expect the clouds to be a precursor for some rainfall and even a chance for some light snow across the northeast Friday night into Saturday morning.
Unfortunately, this new storm system will mark the beginning of a cool and at times rainy trend that will continue into early next week. In fact, we will be so cool that some light snowflakes cannot be ruled out for Eastern South Dakota and far Western Minnesota late Friday night into Saturday morning. There is a possibility that some spots may wake up to 1-3 inches of snow in Northeast South Dakota and Western Minnesota on Saturday.
Make sure you get outside and enjoy the dry and fairly mild weather before our pattern turns cool and rainy this weekend and into next week! Average temperatures this time of year are in the lower to middle 60s.
