Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving Day will be dry and slightly cooler. While we’ll start with clouds in eastern South Dakota, expect increasing sunshine as the day goes on. Highs in eastern South Dakota will be near thirty degrees in eastern South Dakota with middle thirties in central and western South Dakota. The breezy conditions we have in southeast KELOLAND will decrease later this morning and into the afternoon.
Friday will be a little warmer with highs in the middle thirties in eastern South Dakota to the forties in central and western KELOLAND. Thirties and forties will continue into the weekend for central and eastern South Dakota while western KELOLAND will be close to fifty.
Changes come next week. The jet stream will dive into the western United States on Monday. This will bring warmer air into the central and northern plains on Monday with highs mainly in the forties. A storm system will move into the plains by Tuesday to allow for a chance at rain and/or snow. As the system leaves on Wednesday, MUCH colder air will move in with highs only in the single digits and teens later in the week.
