The system that brought the clouds, rain and cold yesterday has moved out and we have a whole different thing going on today. Today will be sunny and a lot warmer with high temps in the upper 60s in Sioux Falls and along and east of I-29. Most places along and west of the James River will soar into the mid-70s this afternoon.

Other than a chance of scattered showers tomorrow night, the rest of the week will be just as nice. Tomorrow will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 70s. Thursday will be sunny with slightly cooler highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Friday will be a bit cooler with a chance of showers late Friday afternoon into Friday night. Friday will mark the beginning of a change in our overall weather pattern that will last through the weekend and into next week. Saturday and Sunday will be cooler with scattered showers. High temps will only reach the upper 50s to low 60s on Saturday and Sunday. Long-range models are suggesting that the cooler temperatures will stick around through at least mid-week.

This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week in South Dakota. Take a moment to review your severe weather safety plan with your family. Make sure your kids know where to go and what to do when severe weather strikes. There will be a statewide tornado drill this Wednesday, April 24th. A test tornado watch will be issued at 10 am, a test tornado warning will be issued at 10:15 am. Sirens will sound, and you will likely get an alert on your mobile device.
