Finally Friday's Forecast

A band of showers will develop Thursday night behind a cold front slipping across the area. Expect a little rain and snow along a band from the Gillette area to the Bismarck area.

The cold front continues to sag southeast on Friday and a band of showers will pass through behind that front. Many locations will see a little rain and snow. Minor accumulations are possible on Friday evening. Expect most spots to see less than an inch, but 1-3" is possible in the Lead/Deadwood area. Areas near the Black Hills will be much colder for Friday.

Extended Forecast

Saturday will be cool, too, with highs mostly in the 40s. But, with some sunshine it'll be a little more palatable. Winds will remain quick.

Temps climb for Sunday and Monday before a cool-down on Tuesday. The forecast gets a little murkier from there as models can't agree on the run-up to Thanksgiving. My gut says it'll be warmer for the holiday.
