Summer weather outlook is here: Much like last year?

There are hints that the Black Hills could see much of what we saw last year, at least according to long range guidance

Lets talk a little bit about conditions over the next couple days before we get to the long range!

  • A beautiful day is on tap, as temperatures climb into the mid 70’s.
  • Perhaps a few high clouds, with light Westerly to Southwesterly winds.

  • Easter Weekend looks good going into Saturday afternoon
  • A few spot thundershowers could develop in the Black Hills in the afternoon, but the main line will be coming in later that evening
  • The cold front will drop temperatures for Easter morning, along with lingering showers
  • Monday may have a spot shower or two with slightly improving temperatures
  • Once we get to Tuesday, temperatures start to rocket back to the 60s, with 70s by Wednesday and dry conditions

The early expectations for Summer are out and at the very least, it looks like it could repeat a little of what we saw last year around our region. Given, this could change a lot before all is said and done, but let’s see what we’re looking at for now!


Climate Prediction Center – NOAA

  • Both the West and East Coast look to be warmer than normal this Summer
  • Areas of the Great Plains are forecasted to see cooler than normal temperatures
  • The Black Hills region has a chance of being just about average for temperatures May-July


Climate Prediction Center – NOAA

  • Most of the country shows at least slightly above average precipitation values to be forecasted.
  • Wyoming, including parts of the Black Hills region has moderate confidence of above average precipitation
  • This would fall into the same category as last year, where we received above normal precipitation values and generally average temperatures
