Sioux Falls, SD
A very warm day is ahead in the forecast for this first day of spring. Look for widespread 60s and 70s this afternoon, with the warmest weather found in southcentral KELOLAND. Highs in Sioux Falls will be in the upper 60s with west winds this afternoon. Fire danger will be very high today and a red flag warning has been issued for many areas.
A cold front will march from north to south today, leading to colder weather for some on Saturday. We think Aberdeen will stay in the lower 40s on Saturday, with 51 in Sioux Falls and 56 at Pierre. Rapid City will still be warmer at 67, with lower 70s around Pine Ridge.
Sunday looks even cooler in most areas East River. We also will be tracking a disturbance moving our way from North Dakota. There is a chance of mixed precipitation Sunday morning across the east, with a slushy mix of rain and snow possible in western MN during Sunday afternoon.
Monday looks quiet ahead of a stronger storm system for Tuesday. It appears rain chances are going up for Sioux Falls and Aberdeen. We may even have some thunder with this set-up in eastern KELOLAND. Also, don’t be too surprised if snow develops behind the low track…perhaps affecting far northwestern SD and much of North Dakota.
After that system departs, cooler weather is likely on Wednesday.
