The Erik Files: WOW! October starts Thursday.

Well ladies and gentlemen, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Weather-wise, it felt very fall-like this past weekend with temps in the 60’s and a trace of rain at the airport.

Take a look at the wind gusts as of 12 NOON: We had 41 MPH wind gusts here in Rapid City! Lemmon, Faith, Philip, and Martin checked in with 36 MPH gusts.

AS FOR PRECIPITATION CHANCES: We really do need the precipitation, and unfortunately it looks like for the next 7 days, rain chances are pretty much non-existent. Mostly sunny skies will dominate for the next several days.

Below normal temperatures are in the forecast with highs only making it into the 60’s. As we go into the evening hours, the clouds will start to dissipate and we’ll see temps go back into the upper 40’s for lows.

After today, we’ll go back up into the upper 70’s with breezy conditions for your Tuesday, then we go to a high of 58 for your Thursday, back into the 70’s for Friday, then low – mid 60’s for the weekend.

Enjoy your weekend!
