DISCUSSION
 
 
HIGH PRESSURE TO THE SOUTH RESULTING IN WEST WINDS TODAY, ALONG WITH  
HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS. THERE ARE A FEW HEAT OF THE AFTERNOON  
THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY EAST OF I29. THESE WILL DISSIPATE WITH LOSS OF  
DAYTIME HEATING. EXPECT SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT TONIGHT DUE TO DRY  
AIR IN PLACE AND LIGHT WINDS RESULTING IN TEMPERATURES FALLING INTO  
THE UPPER 50S AND LOW 60S. IT WILL STAY HOT THROUGH THE WEEKEND.  
SATURDAY WILL BE DRY, WITH HIGHS IN THE 90S AND AFTERNOON HUMIDITY  
BETWEEN 20 AND 30 PERCENT. WINDS WILL BE SOUTHERLY ACROSS CENTRAL  
SOUTH DAKOTA, AND WESTERLY IN EASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA/WESTERN  
MINNESOTA, BUT WILL ALSO GRADUALLY TRANSITION TO SOUTHERLY. THIS  
WILL DRAW IN MORE HUMID AIR, AND WHILE SUNDAY WILL ALSO BE HOT WITH  
TEMPERATURES TOPPING OUT IN THE 90S, AFTERNOON HUMIDITY WILL ONLY  
DROP TO AROUND 30 PERCENT.
