Thursday Afternoon Weather Discussion

Thursday 1 p.m. temperatures


For what was a hectic Thursday morning has made for a calmer afternoon. We did see some clearing in a few areas after the sun came up, but more clouds have been building into the region. With the low pressure and cold front that bothered us earlier continues to move east, the wind will pick up from the northwest and will make for a breezy afternoon. 

Highs: 66°F-75°F

Wind: NW 15-30 mph 


We should see some clearing tonight. Most of us will be mostly clear to partly cloudy. The wind will still be breezy this evening, but diminish during the overnight hours. 

Lows: 48°F-52°F

Wind: NW 10-25 mph 


High pressure will move into South Dakota tomorrow and will help bring a decent amount of sunshine in our region. However, it will be another cooler day with highs in the upper 60s. Some of us may break 70 degrees tomorrow. 

Highs: 64°F-72°F

Wind: NW/N 5-15 mph 

Extended Forecast 

The good news is that we should have a pleasant and dry weekend with the high pressure system hanging around South Dakota and Nebraska. Expect mostly sunny skies Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 70s. Showers and thunderstorms could move into the region Monday afternoon and evening with another round Wednesday. We could be sitting in the lower 60s for Wednesday as well. 

Have a wonderful day!
