Sioux Falls, SD
We have a mild start to the morning in much of KELOLAND and another day of highs in the upper 20s and lower 30s East River, with upper 30s in the Rapid City. Areas of clouds will continue in the forecast as well.
The mild trends will continue one more night with most areas holding in the 20s. The mild start to the day Saturday will come to a halt, however, as a strong cold front dives south during the day.
We expect areas of light snow and blowing snow starting in the morning in northern KELOLAND. That trend will move south through Sioux Falls during the mid afternoon. We expect reduced visibilities with gusts over 40 mph from the north.
Sharply colder weather is forecast Saturday night into Sunday with subzero weather likely East River. Wind chills will be -20 to -30 in many areas, so be prepared for the cold weather.
Another Alberta clipper will quickly enter the region on Monday and Monday night with accumulating snow in parts of northern and eastern KELOLAND. This system will bring strong winds behind it, so more blowing snow problems are likely by Tuesday.
The cold looks intense behind this system with frigid wind chills, perhaps at -30 or lower at some point late Tuesday into Wednesday.
To summarize, a cold week is ahead…enjoy the mild weather while it lasts.
