Posted: 11:00 AM - Isolated thunderstorms this afternoon for parts of KOTA Territory, then we see a stretch of DRY and PLEASANT DAYS just in time for the weekend!

Daily Forecast

From Chief Meteorologist Mike Modrick:

Thunderstorms Tonight.

Partly cloudy skies today as highs go to the lower 80s for much of KOTA Territory. An isolated thunderstorm is possible in Rapid City this afternoon as the trough that brought us the storms yesterday is still here. To the east of Rapid City, there is a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather as some storms that develop in the plains could be strong with large hail and damaging winds. After 10 PM most, if not, all of the storms should be out of KOTA Territory, leaving behind mostly clear skies.

Quiet, sunny and less humid weather returns to end the week, and most of the weekend, although Saturday could bring an isolated storm or two at night.
