Clouds will pass through the area tonight as cooler air sinks into KELOLAND. Overnight lows will fall to the 20s and 30s with strong northwest winds in central and western SD. Wind gusts could even be up to 60 mph in western SD.
Tomorrow will have a strong northerly wind for the whole region and slightly cooler afternoon highs, though temperatures will still be above-normal for mid-December. We’re looking for highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s. A snow system will move through the Midwest tonight lasting into tomorrow morning but the bulk of the snow is expected to hit northern Minnesota. That being said, KELOLAND could see some wraparound light snow or even light rain passing through Monday. If there is any snow accumulation in the north, it should be less than an inch.
Skies will be partly cloudy on Tuesday as slightly cooler air continues to ooze into east KELOLAND. We expect highs to be in the 30s East River with 40s to 50s for central and west SD. Wednesday is looking similar but a few less 30s and more highs in the 40s to near 50 degrees.
Thursday could see some passing rain/snow mix with partly cloudy skies on Friday. Highs still in the mid-30s to low 40s East River, while central and west SD reach the 40s and 50s. Next weekend is showing some early signs of another area of low pressure that could bring KELOLAND much cooler air with some rain and snow.
