Area continues to deal with above average temperatures

PIERRE, S.D. (DRG News) – Temperatures will likely be in the mid to upper 90s in parts of South Dakota in the next few days.

Meteorologist Paul Trambley says the average high temperature for the area this time of year is in the upper 80s.

With the high temperatures, Trambley says the National Weather Service may issue some alerts.

In the winter, weather forecasters use the term “wind chill” to combine various factors to describe what the temperature feels like. Trambley says a “heat index” is the summer version of that.
