Sioux Falls, SD
Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast today with highs recovering back into the 40s in much of eastern KELOLAND. We expected highs in the mid 50s in Pierre and lower 60s at Rapid City. Winds will also be much lighter today, making for more pleasant conditions in much of region.
Clouds will increase overnight with a few showers or sprinkles possible late in Aberdeen. This will be followed by warmer weather tomorrow in KELOLAND with widespread 60s expected West River. Upper 50s are likely in Sioux Falls. Stronger winds are forecast once again in the afternoon west of the James Valley. Those winds will spread southeast Friday night into Saturday.
A brief cool down on Saturday will be followed by some recovery early Sunday with temperatures back in the 50s to near 60 one more time. Then, a major cold front will dive south for Monday.
Sharply colder weather is likely early next week with areas of snow possible on Monday. Highs will drop into the 20s by Tuesday in most areas and may stay below freezing much of the week…especially if any snow falls early in the forecast. Stay tuned.
