Heat and Storms
We have sunny and hot days today through Saturday with temperatures well on up into the 80s, even a 92° Saturday. The record high in downtown Rapid City is 96° in 1969.
By Sunday and Memorial Day, another trough moves in from the southwest, bringing another chance of showers and storms. Storms will be more likely in the evening hours, very important if you're camping. If you haven't already, download the KOTA Weather App so you can keep informed when storms threaten. There is a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms Saturday night and Sunday.
