Dry skies are likely Friday and Saturday, but the rain and snow will return on Sunday and Monday. Along with the dry skies, temperatures will slowly warm closer to average. By the time April starts on Friday, average highs are in the lower fifties for much of southern KELOLAND. Any warmth we get will quickly go away by early next week as another round of cold air moves in. Temperatures early next week will once again fall to ten to fifteen degrees below average. Along with the cooler air on Monday, snow will also be possible.
Cloudy skies will prevail for the next thirty-six to forty-eight hours with temperatures remaining below average. Rain (and a little light snow) will fall in western and central South Dakota this evening and tonight. Tonight’s lows will fall to the twenties and thirties, while highs on Thursday will hit the forties and fifties. The rain will move into eastern KELOLAND on Thursday, with rain amounts staying light in many areas with about a tenth of an inch possible. Some areas might be able to get as much as a quarter inch or more, western South Dakota has the best chance for the heavier rain.
