Sioux Falls, SD
We have another cool morning in KELOLAND with a cold front on the move. This will deliver the coldest air of the season so far with freezing temperatures likely by tomorrow morning.
A freeze warning has been posted for much of KELOLAND tonight. Widespread temperatures below freezing are expected. Before that happens, today’s weather will be cooler with breezy northwest winds. Most areas will be in the lower 60s.
Forecast lows tonight will be near 24 in Aberdeen, meeting the definition of a hard freeze. Sioux Falls will be warmer, but with a low near 30, you’ll need to cover any sensitive vegetation you want to keep. Lower 30s are expected in both Pierre and Rapid City.
We expect another cool day tomorrow with many areas in the 50s East River. This will set the stage for another night of freezing temperatures Friday night. So, if you cover something tonight, you’ll likely need to do it again.
Saturday will be a little warmer with upper 50s Saturday and lower 60s west, but much warmer weather should return late Sunday into Monday. In fact, 70s are likely again with mild Pacific air expected.
A little rain is back in the forecast Tuesday, but nothing heavy is forecast. Temperatures may dip a little with that front as well. It appears temperatures will average above normal once again late next week.
