What a day we had today! The western part of the area will remain much warmer tonight, but overall everyone will experience a pleasant evening with a lack of cloud cover. Our overnight lows tonight will fall into the lower to mid 40's making for a mild start to our Saturday.
As far as Saturday goes, it's looking to be the warmest day of the calendar year so far across the entire Sioux Empire. Nearly all of us will make it to 80 degrees but even in locations that fall short, it will still be in the mid to upper 70's. Sunshine will stick around all day again for Saturday and be pretty comparable to Friday. Clouds will gradually be building in for Easter Sunday.
We'll see a mix of sun and clouds on Easter Sunday, but we're also tracking some rainfall. The rain is expected to be spotty at best and mainly impact northwestern South Dakota during the morning, but then more developing showers will arrive during the evening hours especially along and south of I-90 and impacting the eastern part of the Sioux Empire. Some will linger into early Monday morning, but heavy rainfall isn't anticipated. Temperatures on Easter Sunday will also take a hit as a cold front moves through. Highs will only be in the 50's to the north and 60's to the south.
As we begin next week with a mix of sun and clouds on Monday, we'll see more sunshine throughout a majority of the week as temperatures warm back up into the 60's and 70's gradually through the week. Our next chance of rain that we are tracking won't return until next Friday. Otherwise, we'll see more dry days this week allowing river levels to gradually go down.
