  • 78°
  • 62°

Our average high Friday is 83 in Rapid City. We'll be just a few degrees below that. But for the weekend, highs will be closer to 70, a very cool late August weekend. This is also the weekend for Kool Deadwood Nites, which will, literally, be "Kool".

And then there are the thunderstorms. Very hit-and-miss storms will occur overnight and during the afternoon Friday. The main time for widespread thunderstorms will be overnight Friday through much of the day Saturday.

Additional thunderstorms will develop Saturday and linger to Sunday morning. Then skies will be clearing later Sunday. Another small storm system could bring another round of rain Tuesday.
