The clouds will continue to move through KELOLAND this evening and tonight. Winds will slowly turn northwest in western and central South Dakota with the passage of a cold front. Lows will be in the twenties by Friday morning.
As the cold front moves through eastern KELOLAND tomorrow, winds will increase from the northwest during the day and allow for cooler temperatures to filter in. I wouldn’t be surprised if our high temperatures are hit early in the day followed by falling temperatures in the afternoon. Early highs Friday will only be in the thirties to near forty degrees.
The weekend will be chilly with temperatures in thirties. As the cold air settles in, weak waves of energy might be able to spark scattered snow showers throughout the weekend. Parts of south central and southeast KELOLAND will have to be watched closely Saturday night and Sunday morning for the possibility of freezing drizzle as south winds above the surface will pull in warmer temperatures at cloud level.
The cold air will stay in place for next week. We’ll also watch a storm system that will move from the southwest United States to the Great Lakes. This system might be able to give KELOLAND a better chance at snow Wednesday. After the system leaves, the coldest air of the season will move in.
The clouds have been hanging tough in KELOLAND today and as a result, temperatures stayed on the cool side in the east.
