Updated: 1:51 PM - More record warmth on Thanksgiving

Daily Forecast

From Chief Meteorologist Mike Modrick:

Record Warm Thanksgiving Possible!

The heat is back on today, then even warmer air for Thanksgiving with highs approaching 70°. And we could beat the Thanksgiving record highs of 69° at the airport and 67° in downtown Rapid City.

Windy and slightly cooler temperatures return Friday with the cool air lingering for Saturday. But the next round of warm air returns Sunday, a perfect day to put up outdoor decorations!
