Forecast: Sunny & Mild, Scattered Storms This Weekend
From KSFY Television Meteorologist Shawn Cable
A big bubble of high pressure over the Great Lakes will bring another really nice day. Today will be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the low 80s. It will be a bit breezy west of the James River where wind gusts from 20 to 30 mph will be possible through much of the day.
That area of high pressure will gradually work its way east this weekend as our next system slowly moves into western and central South Dakota tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow will be breezy with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing west of the James River tomorrow afternoon and night. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move east to Sioux Falls and I-29 late Saturday night with scattered showers and thunderstorms likely on Sunday, Sunday night and Monday.
The overall severe weather risk is a relatively low throughout the weekend, however thunderstorms could bring areas of locally heavy rainfall. There is still some uncertainty as to where storms will develop and where the heaviest rain will fall. Stay with us for updates.
Thunderstorms should end by late Monday followed by a cooler, drier weather pattern that will take us through much of next week. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be mostly sunny with highs only reaching the upper 60s to low 70s.
