Tuesday's Forecast

A little wave is sweeping through the area, delivering a reinforcing shot of cold air to North Dakota and Minnesota. It will do little to the Black Hills region besides keeping our winds quick again on Tuesday, especially in the afternoon. A few mid-level clouds will pass through, but generally skies will feature stars at night and plenty of sunshine each afternoon through the forecast.

Extended Forecast

High temperatures will continue to climb on Wednesday with widespread 60s expected and maybe even a few 70s popping up by Thursday.

Because the atmosphere is so dry, the wave that sweeps through on Friday will do little besides kicking up the winds, pushing our temps slightly lower. Rain or snow isn't expected. The weekend will see temperatures rebound and will bring all of our neighbors out to rake. The last week of October looks good, too.
