The weather on the final travel day before Thanksgiving will be mild, with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 60s to mid 70s across the Black Hills region. Some locations may even set record high temperatures for the day. A cold front will cross the area Wednesday night, bringing gusty winds and cooler temperatures for Thanksgiving. Northwest winds will reach 40 to 50 mph during midday with high temperatures ranging from the 30s over northeastern Wyoming and the Black Hills to around 50 in south central South Dakota. Areas north of the Black Hills may see some light rain or snow showers.
Another storm system will bring a chance of snow to northeastern Wyoming and western South Dakota from Saturday night though Monday. Temperatures will be much colder as high pressure from Canada pushes into the northern Plains. Highs will drop into the 30s to lower 40s on Sunday--and reach only in the 20s on Monday.
