Sunday's Forecast

Saturday set the mark to beat for the warmest temperatures so far in 2018 for many towns throughout western South Dakota. Cooler, but still warm conditions are expected along with more cloud cover for Sunday. Storms are likely, but not until the evening, so don't cancel any outdoor plans earlier, or even during most of the afternoon! Storms will move in from the southwest between the 5-8 time frame. Some will likely become severe. Hail and strong winds are the biggest threats. The severe risk lowers after sunset, but expect scattered rain showers through the overnight. High temperatures will get into the lower 80s on the plains and upper 70s in the Black Hills. It will be a little cooler in northeast Wyoming and much warmer through central and eastern South Dakota.

Extended Forecast

Temperatures will end up pretty close to normal for Memorial Day. We'll be in the mid 70s for highs. Showers and storms will once again be possible throughout the day. As we head back to work on Tuesday, the chance of showers continues. The second half of the shortened week looks drier and warmer as well.
