The below average temperatures will continue into the weekend and next week. We’ll also watch for the potential for snow early next week. The latest information now shows the potential storm will set up just south of us, due to another hit of cold air from the north.
A cold front will move through KELOLAND today, bringing strong north winds and colder temperatures for much of us. Southeast KELOLAND might be able to escape the cooler air today before the front moves in. We’ll get to the middle thirties in southeast KELOLAND today. Northern and western South Dakota will get the front sooner with highs in the twenties and low thirties. The north winds of ten to twenty miles per hour will be strong enough to give areas of blowing snow in central and northeast South Dakota. As cold air settles in tonight, lows will fall below zero in northern KELOLAND with single digits in the south. Wednesday will be a cold day with highs mainly in the teens and twenties, but Thursday will give us a quick shot of warmer air as highs return to the thirties and forties. Along with the warmer temperatures on Thursday, there will be a chance for a light wintry mix for the eastern third of KELOLAND. Possibly just enough to give some areas a slick commute in the morning.
