Daily Forecast

From Chief Meteorologist Mike Modrick:

A Warmer and Dry Weekend

Scattered Showers will continue to spread across western South Dakota overnight. You're more likely to see measurable moisture to the south, but nothing for the northern plains. Some of the highest elevations of the Hills will mix in with snow. In Rapid City, rain totals will likely hold at or under a tenth of an inch through Friday evening.

As the low moves away, we'll be dry and mild for the weekend.Overall, a warmer pattern looks to want to set in for next week. We are tracking another quick storm that could bring another round of mainly rain late Monday and Monday night. Some snow could also occur in Wyoming and the Black Hills. Then the warmer air returns to end the month!
