More moisture is on the way
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Showers and thunderstorms will arrive overnight. They’ll be scattered, so it won’t rain all night, but the best chance for moisture to really develop is during the day Friday. Showers and thunderstorms will continue through the day and winds will increase through the afternoon. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s.
Showers will continue Friday night, but rain will changeover to snow for the northern hills. Accumulations aren’t expected to be a whole lot, but a few inches of snow is possible up toward Lead and surrounding areas. Showers will taper off during the morning hours Saturday, but the wind will really pick up. A High Wind Watch is in effect from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 p.m. Saturday. Gusts up to 65 mph will be possible out on the plains, east of Rapid City. In town, we could have some gusts around 50 mph.
While Saturday is windy, Sunday will be a bit breezy at times. Temperatures will range from the 40s to 50s over the weekend. A few showers will move into the area Sunday night and Monday, mainly for areas south of I-90, especially those closer to the Nebraska state line. A few more shower chances are expected Tuesday and Wednesday, too.
Temperatures will remain below normal through much of next week with highs in the 40s and 50s.
