.DISCUSSION...

Warmer and drier air will move into the region today along with
increasing southerly winds. This will be felt especially across

central South Dakota late this afternoon, switching winds to a
northwest direction, and they will become breezy.

Winds on Sunday will generally be from the northeast behind the
passing cold front. Afternoon relative humidity will range from the
30s across central South Dakota to the 40s and 50s further east.
