A Summer-Like Weekend
Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Aaron Doudna on Saturday, October 10 at 7:08 AM
It's going to feel more like summer instead of fall around the region this weekend! High temps for today will soar into the 80s. Parts of south central South Dakota will even be pushing 90 later this afternoon! The wind will be out of the southwest 10-20 mph. We'll be mostly clear overnight and see lows drop into the mid 50s.
If you're a fan of today's forecast, you'll love Sunday's. We'll be even warmer with highs soaring into the mid to upper 80s. There's a good chance we'll even seen 90s across the region. The wind will pick up too, so we'll see some high fire danger, especially in central South Dakota.
A cool front will push across the region Sunday, but it looks like it'll come through dry. There are no chances for rain in the 7-Day Forecast right now. Highs next week will be in the 60s to low 70s.

A Sunny, VERY Warm Weekend Ahead
We have one more fall-feelin' kind of day before summertime returns with a rousing encore performance. Today will be partly cloudy but not nearly as windy as yesterday. Highs will reach the low 60s in the Sioux Falls area with low 70s likely across central South Dakota.
Tomorrow will be sunny and very warm as afternoon temps soar the low 80s. It is very possible that parts of central and south-central South Dakota will reach the low 90s tomorrow. Sunday will be even warmer with sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
