Monday Forecast: Sunny & warm, then storms on Tuesday
Things recover nicely for our Monday, with temperatures peaking right around 80 degrees, but a stormy and roller coaster week is on tap
- After a cool, Fall like Sunday we recover nicely as rain continues to push Northeast and clear most of the region by mid-morning
- Temperatures will be in the 70s and possibly 80s as dry air continues to push through the region. A Few isolated showers could pop up in the afternoon, but that’s mostly going to be for Northeastern Wyoming and areas of Carter County, Montana and Northwest South Dakota
- After a cool evening in the lower 50s for Rapid City, Tuesday will introduce our next major system that will impact a large portion of this next week
- Most of Tuesday will be dry with a few clouds, before isolated thunderstorms will begin to pop up across the region
- Most of these storms will fire off in northeastern Wyoming, form a line and race across the Black Hills around 3-6 PM, rush hour Tuesday evening
- Some of these could be strong, the distinct threat being strong winds and heavy rain. Storms will increase with intensity as they move across South Dakota and East of the Black Hills
- Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning could feature heavy rain, particularly as you head East of the Black Hills.
- More showers and Thunderstorms are progged for Wednesday, but these will be less intense.
- Temperatures will continue to drop each day going into Thursday, with temperatures struggling to reach the 60s by Thursday
- Easterly winds will bring plenty of moisture to the Eastern foothills and the South Dakota Plains through Thursday, most strong storm activity will by Tuesday evening with thundershower activity being more likely once you get to Wednesday and Thursday
- not 100% on this yet, but we should be prepared for the possibility of some patchy frost as we approach Thursday evening into Friday as temperatures will dip pretty low
- If you have sensitive plants or need to cover up vegetation, its worth keeping an eye on but nothing more at this point. we’ll know much more Tuesday and Wednesday
This weekend is looking NICE so far, I’m going to try and keep that on tap for you guys. Possibility of some mixed precipitation in the Big Horns of Wyoming this week… we’re getting closer to that special time of year… Updates soon 🙂 – Brant
