We sure are spoiled with the weather these last few days and there's no sign of it ending over the next few days. A high pressure system has brought us the beautiful weather and it will remain over the region through tomorrow until it pushes off to the east. Tonight we will drop down to near-normal temperatures with lows in the low 60s. We'll see mostly clear skies as well and light southerly winds. We'll see more of the awesome weather tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 80s to the east and the low 90s the closer you get to Pierre. As that high pressure system moves east, it will allow a weak disturbance to move east too bringing the chance for isolated showers and storms, however they will be focused mainly in the southern portions of the viewing area. Showers and storms will be possible tomorrow night as well as Sunday afternoon and evening. Sunday will present a slightly better chance for t-storms. Highs will be in the mid 80s once again on Sunday but hotter the further north and west you go with highs closer to 90.°
We will start off the workweek dry and a little warmer as another high pressure system builds into the area. That means more southerly winds bringing in hotter temperatures from the south. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s to the east with plenty of sunshine. However, highs will be in the mid 90s towards Pierre. we'll see more of that sunshine on Tuesday which could be our hottest day as we will consistently see winds out of the south and high pressure dominating the region. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s in the eastern portions of the viewing area and the low to mid 90s in the western portions of the viewing area.
A weak system will move into the area on Tuesday which will spark off showers and storms for the western portions of the viewing area in the afternoon and evening hours. That system will move to the east and provide instability and lift for showers and storms for the eastern half of the viewing area Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Some models area showing a good amount of rain on Wednesday, while others aren't showing much. Let's hope we see plenty of rain as we could really use it - Sioux Falls is almost 4" below normal for precipitation this year to date!
The end of next week we get a slight cool down with temperatures in the low to mid 80s which would be great for the Fair that starts next Friday. We end the week with plenty of sunshine and near normal temperatures. There won't be much fluctuations in the temperatures this week, and that's because we don't have any strong systems moving through. Unfortunately, that's bad for those of us who need the rain, which is the entire viewing area! Have a great weekend everyone and get out and enjoy this awesome weather!
