Sioux Falls, SD
Cold winds are in the forecast today with temperatures holding steady in the upper 20s to lower 30s today. The warmest weather will be found across western KELOLAND. Winds will be in the 20-30 mph range through the afternoon. The wind will diminish tonight with lows dropping back to 9 in Aberdeen and lower teens elsewhere. Some light snow showers will be possible overnight and tomorrow in northeastern KELOLAND including Brookings and Marshall. I wouldn’t expect anything heavy, however, just light snow.
The weekend is definitely looking warmer with highs mainly in the 40s. A few areas in south-central KELOLAND could be in the mid to upper 40s. While it looks a little cooler Monday, no arctic air is in the 7 day forecast and the lack of snow will keep temperatures at or above normal. Sioux Falls is now nearly 2 degrees above normal for the month and I see no reason to believe we’ll be changing that trend anytime soon. With the warmer weather, the odds of a white Christmas are going down with no major snowstorms foreseen between now and Christmas. Stay tuned!
