Wednesday's Forecast

More showers and thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday with the strongest of the storms expected southeast of the Black Hills. Most areas will have the threat of showers and storms but the northern and western fringes of our viewing area will remain dry.

Highs will struggle to hit 80° under the rain and cloud cover.

Extended Forecast

Thursday and Friday will bring sunshine and dry conditions, allowing temps to climb a little closer to normal. Those are your days to mow or hit the pools as scattered showers and storms return for the weekend. Some strong storms and heavy rain are possible once again.

I do think drier conditions will return for early next week.
