Temperature will turn cold again across eastern KELOLAND, but we'll still manage 30s in the far west this afternoon. Winds will be lighter this afternoon with mostly sunny skies east and clouds in central areas.
FuturesScan shows the belt of clouds in central KELOLAND today and tonight. There may be a few flurries in this zone where the best contrast in temperature is located. Any snow that fall is expected to be light.
Tonight's lows will be colder again East River, with several areas well below zero.
The same trend will continue tomorrow. The far west will be warmer, the far east much colder. We have a 38 degree spread forecast from Rapid City to Worthington. We'll mention some low snow chances east, but don't expect much moisture.
Friday will be about the same, but our weekend features a few changes. A warm front will develop Saturday and winds will increase from the south during the day. That wind won't feel warm, but temperatures will slowly rise during the day. Sioux Falls could hit a high in the lower 20s by Saturday night. Rapid City will close to 50!
Milder temperatures will spread east on Sunday, but we'll also see areas of mixed precipitation in southern KELOLAND. The majority of the models take this storm system to our south, but it still bears watching in case it jogs a bit to the north.
The 7-day numbers still look mild early next week. We'll eventually see another arctic front later next week with some snow chances, so enjoy the normal or above normal weather for now.
