Only high clouds have been passing over KELOLAND today, as chilly air grips the region. Despite sunshine and winds less than 15 mph, temperatures continue about 20 degrees colder than normal, in the 20s.
Skies will be partly cloudy tonight, with winds winding around to a southeasterly direction and picking up speed, especially in central South Dakota. Temperatures will bottom out in the teens, but may actually start rising by morning due to the southeast breeze.
Tomorrow will be a partly to mostly cloudy day, but temperatures will be warmer because of a strong southerly wind of 15-30 mph. Highs will be in the mid 30s East River to the 40s in the west, where clouds will be thicker and winds will be lighter.
As far as Saturday is concerned, we’ve pulled chances of showers for all but areas along and south of I-90. It’s still questionable as to whether there will be light rain or snow showers or a mixture… but right now we’re leaning toward light rain showers due to warm temps at cloud level. Otherwise skies will again be partly to mostly cloudy with a gentle south breeze turning to a northerly direction. For Sioux Falls and SE KELOLAND, the light showers are likely to be a late day or even nighttime event.
Clouds may linger on Sunday morning, but we’re expecting clear skies across KELOLAND Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will be near-normal, in the mid 40s East to the low 50s in the West.
We’re still expecting sharply warmer temperatures next week, with a string of above-normal temperatures all week. With mostly sunny skies, highs will be in the low to mid 50s East River, and the mid 50s to around 60 West River. There are indications the pattern will break down with cooler temperatures for the weekend (November 18-19).
