Monday's Forecast

A large low pressure system continues to meander across the Upper Plains, now spinning in Nebraska. It's brought another wet weekend to the area, leaving most of the Black Hills area dripping with extra summer moisture. I haven't heard all that many complaints about it as it has fallen pretty steadily instead of one big damaging deluge.

There's been some minor flooding here or there, but generally it's been appreciated. Last summer was a dry one... and when I ran the numbers I came to the conclusion that this June already has as much moisture as all of last summer here in the Black Hills. Yikes.

Everything is green and healthy and we can sit back and not worry as the summer heat returns to the area this week.

Drier air builds into the area on Monday... leaving most locations will partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Some showers will linger southeast of the Black Hills... mostly in south central South Dakota.

Extended Forecast

A bubble of warm and dry air builds in for Tuesday and Wednesday, allowing temps to climb into the normal range for mid-Tuesday. A few showers and storms are possible Tuesday night north of the Black Hills as a wave clips through that area.

A big push of warm air Wednesday night will leave the public pools busting with kids on Thursday as temps soar into the 90s on the South Dakota plains. Another wet weekend is possible as another one of these upper level lows... like those of the last two weekends, settles in just west of here, throwing waves of showers in our direction. This wet month may just end on another soggy note.
