Temperatures have soared to the fifties and sixties in western, central, and southeast KELOLAND this afternoon. Cooler air is residing over the snow pack in northeast South Dakota where temperatures are in the thirties and forties. Clouds will come and go as we go through this evening and tonight as temperatures fall to the twenties and thirties with light east/southeast winds.
Friday will be another warm day with highs in the fifties for those with no snow cover, to the forties over snow covered ground. Winds will remain light with speeds of five to fifteen miles per hour.
Cooler air will start to slowly sag south through KELOLAND on Saturday. Highs will still be in the forties and fifties, but clouds will be much thicker and scattered showers will be possible.
We’ll really feel the cold starting on Sunday. Expect breezy north winds under partly cloudy skies for Easter Sunday. Temperatures will be in the thirties and forties. We’ll also end up adding a chance for light snow on Sunday. The best chance for the light snow will be from Pierre to Sioux Falls and into northwest Iowa.
Temperatures will remain below average for early next week, but warmer air will return on Thursday. Taking a sneak peak into April, I think we’ll have more temperature swings (not many sustained cold days), but most of the days will be below average.
