Mild weather will not last through the weekend, but we’ll still be close to average on Saturday.
Skies will become mostly cloudy tonight with scattered showers possible. The best chance for the rain will be in south central and southeast KELOLAND (south of I-90). Isolated thundershowers will also be possible. Most of the rain will stay light with amounts less than a quarter inch, but if you’re caught under a thundershower expect a little more. There will be widespread thirties tonight.
Morning showers will be likely in southeast KELOLAND, followed by a slow decrease in clouds. Northeast and central South Dakota will have dry skies. Western South Dakota will have scattered showers throughout the day. Temperatures will not be as warm as today, but many locations will still be close to average with highs in the fifties. Northeast KELOLAND will be the exception (because of the snow pack), with highs in the thirties and forties.
Much cooler air will pour in on Easter Sunday. Strong north winds will be felt across the area as temperatures will be in the thirties and forties. We’re still watching for chances of light snow on Sunday. If anything falls, it will stay light with amounts generally less than an inch.
The cool air will last through Tuesday with highs remaining below average. Much above average air will try to return by midweek.
