Sunday's Forecast

Several wildfires in eastern Montana combined with northwest winds and gave us a lot of haze for Friday. Winds were more out of the north and northeast for Saturday, and that somewhat limited the haze. As we move into Sunday, high pressure to our north will produce southeast winds. Therefore, we are not expecting the haze to be anywhere near like it was Friday or Saturday. Some light haze, however is certainly possible. Temperatures will once again warm well into the 90s. We'll go for 95°F in Rapid City. Lots of sunshine is expected, but you will notice some clouds moving in from the southwest later on in the afternoon and evening.

Extended Forecast

We'll make another run at triple digits on Monday. There will be a slight dip in temperatures Tuesday, where some showers and thunderstorms are possible late in the day. The coolest day of the upcoming week looks to be Wednesday, but highs will still be in the mid and upper 80s. Showers and thunderstorms are possible Wednesday as well. As we move towards next weekend, the pattern looks warm, with only small chances for precipitation.
