Tuesday's Forecast

The pleasant weather keeps on keeping on in the Upper Plains. Temps peaked in the 70s on Thursday and we've held 60s each afternoon since then.

Tuesday brings some minor changes to the forecast. We'll start with quiet winds in South Dakota (quicker in Wyoming) under sunny skies. As a low pressure system approaches, it 'll spread clouds across the sky over the course of the day. Winds speeds will crank up after lunch with strengthening southerly flow and they'll remain quick into Tuesday night. Expect the occasional gust up to 35mph... and expect some of your neighbor's trash or fallen leaves to find their way into your yard.

Extended Forecast

A system has a target painted on central and eastern South Dakota on Wednesday and we may see some showers on the plains of western South Dakota. Even a couple rumbles of thunder are possible in south central South Dakota on Wednesday afternoon. Winds will be quickest in central South Dakota and will relax west of the Black Hills.

An unsettled forecast brings slight chances of light rain on Thursday and into the weekend. Occasionally breezy winds will keep things discombobulated over the weekend, too.
