Temps will return back into the Upper 80’s – Low 90’s. Winds will shift out of the Southwest, and low humidity with some places dropping below 10% will also be in play. If you haven’t closed your pool yet, I would definitely use it tomorrow if possible.

NOW THAT FALL IS HERE:

I hope you get out and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. If you watched NewsCenter1 Today earlier, we discussed the normal high for the 1st day of Fall, vs. the normal high for the last day of fall.  Here’s a look at that temperature drop! We go from having an average high of 72 degrees, to having an average high of 36 degrees. I would definitely take advantage of being able to get outside and enjoy the outdoors while we still can, especially with temperatures above normal for the next couple of days.

FORECAST FOR TODAY:
For the most part, we could’ve copied yesterday’s forecast and pasted it for today. Overall sunny with the , with temps in the upper 70’s & 80’s. Rapid City Skycast Today Tonight

FORECAST FOR TONIGHT:
Another mostly clear, and gorgeous evening albeit the haze. We’ll drop into the 40’s & 50’s for the overnight low. Winds will stay out of the North, but they will be light at around 5-10 MPH

7-DAY FORECAST:

It will definitely feel like Fall as we roll into the weekend with temperatures going into the Low – Mid 70’s. Our average high for this time of year is only 72 Degrees, so we are well above normal for this time of year. Some places will stay in the upper 60’s. I do have a rain chance in the forecast Saturday Night – Sunday Morning. Overall, not abad evening for some Friday Night Football, as well as going out and doing your favorite Fall activities this weekend.
