Northwest winds will continue today at fifteen to thirty miles per hour. The winds will add an extra bite to the air as afternoon highs will only be near fifty degrees. This will happen with mostly cloudy skies from Mobridge to Sioux Falls and east. There’s a better chance for sunshine to the west of that area.
Clearing skies will move through KELOLAND tonight and winds will become light. The combination of light winds and clear skies will allow temperatures to fall to the twenties in central and eastern KELOLAND. Western South Dakota will have lows near thirty.
Temperatures will be slightly warmer for eastern KELOLAND on Wednesday with highs in the low to middle fifties. Central and western South Dakota will warm to the low sixties.
High pressure from Canada will start to move into the upper plains on Thursday, and it will settle over KELOLAND on Friday. While the high will bring dry skies, it will also bring cold air. Highs on Friday will be in the middle forties in eastern South Dakota, near fifty in central South Dakota, to the upper fifties in western KELOLAND.
The weekend will be dry and warmer. As high pressure leaves to our southeast, southerly winds will increase to help bring in warmer air. Highs this weekend will return to the fifties and sixties.
