Friday Forecast: Warm, sunny days are ahead
An unusual break from the stormy, cool pattern we've seen over the last couple of months, dry air will entrench itself into the region
- The forecast is short and sweet, given that dry air is making its home in the Black Hills region over the next couple of days
- Temperatures will top out in the 60s and 70s for most of us today, with plenty of sunshine on tap for Friday
- One thing to take note of going into this weekend and next week is the drop in moisture across the region
- Relative humidity values will be dropping to the 20-30% range, so we’ll need to start paying attention to fire danger
- It doesn’t take much to dry out the region, and 3-4 days of sunny, dry and warm weather will quickly make work of our grasslands and forests
- Temperatures will continue to climb through the weekend, with 70s and 80s on tap with plenty of sunshine once again on Saturday.
- Normal temperatures for this time of year are high 70s, so we’ll be right where we’re supposed to be on Saturday.
- Sunday really kicks in the summer-like temperatures as we creep into the mid, perhaps high 80s across the region
- Monday could even see a few 90s across the region, its amazing what dry air is capable of when its left in a region for more than a couple days
- Next week will be a flurry of different systems plummeting from Alaska and crashing into the West coast.
- Whether or not those systems hold together as it moves into the central portion of the continent will be crucial in our long range pattern.
- So far, it looks like we could have at the very least a few storms and cooler temperatures by the middle to later portion of next week.
It’s suicide prevention week this week, and just a reminder to everyone that its hard for people suffering from depression and anxiety to reach out. We have sunny, warm days ahead.
