Rain, possible snow on the way

GILLETTE, Wyo.— The week-long stint of summer-reminiscent weather is about to come to a rainy, possibly snowy, end, according to the National Weather Service (NWS)

Temperatures are expected to drop significantly over the next 48 hours from a mid-week average high of 70 degrees to a high of 44 degrees on Friday afternoon, May 20, with lows in the high 20s and low 30s expected during the evenings, according to the NWS in Rapid City, South Dakota.

The falling temperatures will likely be accompanied by rain on Thursday, May 19, switching overnight to snow showers mixed with rain on Friday, NWS says.

Highs on Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22, will not likely climb above 60 degrees, per NWS, though the rain and snow will likely be gone Saturday morning with sunny conditions moving in for the weekend.

Thunderstorms are expected to move back in Sunday evening, NWS says.
