Nice Weekend Weather

8/18/2017 - From Meteorologist Phil Schreck:

Temperatures are finally getting back up to where they're supposed to be this time of the year! After a little bit of Saturday morning fog, you can expect plenty of sunshine with highs in the lower 80s in the southeast to the lower 90s in central South Dakota. The wind will be coming in from the south to southeast at 5-15 mph and may feel a bit sticky. A slight chance for storms comes our way on Sunday but a better chance for showers and storms arrives Sunday night. There's going to be a lingering small chance for scattered storms on Monday which may cause a problem with eclipse viewing for some of us.
