Meteorologist David Stradling:
Sunny and hot for Thursday:
Mostly sunny skies are expected all day Thursday and that will help temperatures soar into the 80s and 90s across the area. The sunshine will continue into Friday, but temperatures will be in the 80s for many.
A front looks to sweep through the region Friday night. This may bring an isolated shower or storm to the area Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of clouds are expected over the weekend with much cooler air. Highs will only be in the mid 70s in Rapid City for both Saturday and Sunday.
A ridge looks to build back up and move into the area next week, allowing the summer-like air to return with sunshine many of the days.
