southwesterly flow aloft over SD. At the
surface, a weak low pressure system is
over east-central SD leading to
southerly winds over southeastern SD
with northerly winds elsewhere.
Temperatures this morning are in the 50s
and 60s with a few rain showers present
over south-central and southeastern

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are
expected to continue today over central
and eastern SD. A few afternoon
thunderstorms are likely to pop up over
the Black Hills as well. High

As the low pressure system weakens and
moves off to the southeast, expect light
north to northeast winds to spread
across the state.

Black Hills. Light northerly winds are
