Area Forecast Discussion For Western SD and Northeastern WY
National Weather Service Rapid City SD
442 AM MST Sun Nov 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...(Today Through Saturday)
Issued at 211 AM MST Sun Nov 19 2017

Water vapor shows upper ridge over the western CONUS with NW flow
across the Northern Plains. Broad trof at the surface over the
Northern Plains with dry w/sw flow.

Persistent upper ridge over the western CONUS expected through
the week, bringing mainly dry and mild conditions to the region.
One exception to this will be a clipper system that drives a cold
front through the cwfa late Monday. There may be just enough
moisture to squeeze out a few rain/snow showers Monday night,
followed by chilly and breezy conditions on Tuesday. Mild and dry
wx then dominates through Thursday. Another clipper on Friday may
bring a bit more precipitation along with cooler conditions for
next weekend.

Thanksgiving day is still looking dry and mild with temps in the
50s/60s.
