Good morning and Happy New Year! We already have a warmer start to the morning with many areas in the teens and 20s above zero. Highs today will be in the mid to upper 20s in both Sioux Falls and Aberdeen, with 30s likely West River under partly cloudy skies.
Tonight will stay above zero with a few more clouds in the forecast and highs tomorrow will still be in the 20s in the east with more 30s again in the west. Enjoy the relatively mild weather because big changes are coming this weekend.
We think the weather will start mild on Saturday morning, but a very strong cold front will push south during the day with strong north winds. We’ll likely see wind chills back down in the -20s again through Sunday morning. Highs on Sunday may struggle to hit zero The intensity of the cold may relax a bit by the end of the 7-day forecast, but we are already watching another surge of cold by next Thursday.
Enjoy the “warmer” weather while it lasts!
