Wednesday's Forecast

The pleasant weather remains in place across the Great Plains, keeping our string of 60° days alive.

A push of warm air Wednesday will leave it the warmest day of the week. Some 70s will develop on the South Dakota plains. Showers will push into central and mostly eastern South Dakota, leaving our area dry.

Extended Forecast

A busier pattern is expected for the end of the week and weekend. Chances for showers look low, but there are chances. Winds will be occasionally breezy. I'm eyeing Thursday and especially Saturday to see strong winds.

Looking longer term, it's looking increasingly likely that we'll see a big push of cool air for November 1st. My (too) early guess is that the transition will occur on Halloween, leaving the day breezy with a chance of showers and slipping temps. It might be more trick than treat. :/
