You could not have asked for a better 4th of July weekend! It's been absolutely spectacular, especially for everyone with outdoor plans and picnics..mmm hot dogs and watermelon!
The rest of today will be partly to mostly sunny with temperatures still in the 80s by early evening. For those you of heading out to shoot off fireworks or just going a watching a fireworks display, conditions will be just right. There is a chance of showers and storms in central and south central SD this evening. Some of these storms could be severe with hail and strong, gusty winds.
We will start off Sunday morning mild with overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s. Then Sunday is shaping up to be a lot like today with partly to mostly sunny skies and high temps in the mid to upper 80s. There is a chance of showers and storms late Sunday afternoon into Monday. Again, some of these storms could become severe with damaging winds and hail.
Highs will fall into the mid 70s for the beginning of the week before climbing back into the 80s by Saturday. Our next shot of rain next week will be Wednesday into Thursday.
