It has been a quiet night in KELOLAND as Halloween came to an end and November began. Temperatures have been cooling to the 20s and 30s with breezy winds with gusts in the 30s. Skies have also been mostly clear during the overnight.
A low pressure will be moving over the Midwest this weekend so you can expect a short warming trend over the weekend as we will be ahead of the low. But as the low moves past KELOLAND, winds will shift to the north as we switch to being behind the low so the work week will be cooler as cooler air sinks into the area.
Saturday will be mostly sunny with a few clouds drifting over western KELOLAND and the breezy winds will continue for central and eastern South Dakota today. Wind gusts are expected to be up in the 30s with the occasional gust in the 40s. Afternoon highs today will range from the upper 40s in the east, to upper 50s for central KELOLAND to upper 60s in Rapid City to even a few 70s in the southwest areas of South Dakota.
Saturday night the winds will calm down a little to around 10 to 20 mph and skies will remain mostly clear. Overnight lows will be warmer, bottoming out in the mid-30s to mid-40s. Remember to set your clocks one hour back tonight before you go to sleep!
Sunday is expected to be partly cloudy to mostly cloudy over KELOLAND with afternoon temperatures overall warmer, upper 50s for the east and mid to upper 60s for central and western KELOLAND. Winds will be shifting to a more westerly direction as the day goes with speeds around 10 to 20 mph.
Monday of the next work has a slight chance for light rain as the cooler air moves into the area but the rest of the week is expected to be mostly dry with temperatures mostly in the 50s with clear to partly cloudy skies.
