From KSFY Television Meteorologist Sam Gabrielli

Although clouds will linger for many locations throughout the day today, a rather enjoyable day is upon us compared to yesterday's weather. The big reason for this will be a drastic change in wind. Only a breeze from 5-10 mph is expected in most spots after some wind gusts reached 45+ mph along the Missouri River Tuesday! Again, most of today's clouds will be for eastern locations where high temperatures will range from the mid-40s to the low 50s. Those of you in central South Dakota will enjoy more sunshine today and afternoon thermometer readings will easily soar into the 50s!

High pressure will sink to our south today, thus still bringing in surges of warm, dry air Thursday through Saturday. I highly suggest booking outdoor plans late this week because humidity levels will be low and high temperatures will easily crack 60° for most spots. There will also be quite a bit of sunshine to accompany the warmth.

The only minor issue with the impending warm-up will be for a breezy wind to set up Thursday night through Friday. This is because a front will shift in from the west. Luckily, moisture will be sparse with this system, so no rain is in the forecast.

Both weekend days will differ greatly. One last sunny, mild day sticks around Saturday before another round of rain and breezy conditions approaches for Sunday. Temperatures will also tumble below normal into early next week.
