Wednesday will be a cold day with highs ten to twenty degrees colder than average. Temperatures will quickly try to warm back to the thirties and forties on Thursday, but eastern KELOLAND will have a chance for rain and snow. The cold trend will continue into the coming weekend.
Plenty of sunshine is in the forecast for the next couple of days as temperatures warm close to and above average. Monday’s highs range from the twenties in northern KELOLAND to near forty in Rapid City. South winds may be a little stronger along the Buffalo Ridge and the Sisseton Hills with speeds in the teens and lower twenties, otherwise expect winds of ten to fifteen miles per hour this afternoon. A weak cold front will move through the area Tuesday to help ‘cool’ temperatures for everyone except southeast KELOLAND. The southeast will be ahead of the front and have temperatures warming to the thirties and lower forties, behind the front the temperatures will be about five degrees cooler under mostly sunny skies.
