After recording some sort of rainfall in 8 of the last 9 days we have finally seen a dry day across our area! Despite the dry day, we were still a bit cooler than normal with temperatures around 5 to 10 degrees below the average for this time of year. However, we didn’t see as much sunshine to the east of the James River as we did in central South Dakota. We might have to wait another day or so before we see another fully sunny day.
Tonight will stay clear and mild with temperatures staying near normal with low temps into the upper 40s and low 50s. Wind will calm a bit from the southeast at 5 to 10 mph. There will be a bit more cloud cover in central South Dakota, which might even bring a shower or two. Wind will pick back up from the south at 15 to 30 mph, which will pull up the warmth, but also the moisture. Overall we will stay clear into the morning on Thursday, especially out east, but by the afternoon we will bring in a little more cloud cover and the chance at some showers and storms. Any rain we do get should be minimal with a couple hundredths to a couple tenths at most. Of course, heavier amounts will be possible inside a thunderstorm, but that likelihood isn’t great.
We SHOULD stay dry on Friday, but we may wake up to a couple showers in some spots. From there we will clear up and warm up! The mid 70s expected across the area, but also more of the strong wind. Make sure to take advantage of the sunshine on Friday because this weekend does bring us a chance at some more rain. Saturday will be mostly cloudy and cooler, but rain will be light. Better chances come on Sunday with below normal temps.
MEMORIAL DAY FORECAST: Things are looking a little cooler than originally anticipated, with temperatures into the upper 60s and low 70s, but the rain chances have diminished quite a bit. There are still rain chances, but not as strong as the other day. However, wind looks to be a bit breezy. Overall though, things could be much worse!
