Sioux Falls, SD
We have a nice election day forecast ahead with mostly sunny skies in KELOLAND and highs in the mid 50s in most areas. Rapid City could touch 60 late this afternoon with west winds at 10-20 mph.
Clouds will thicken tonight with a few showers possible in Aberdeen by daybreak. The chance of showers will extend to the south toward Sioux Falls during the morning as a cold front pushes through KELOLAND. Stronger northwest winds will be the big story with gusts over 40 mph possible during the afternoon.
Cooler weather is expected on Thursday with 40s East River and 50s in the west. Friday will be a little warmer ahead of the next cold front, with highs again near 60 in Rapid City.
We do expect more wind and cooler readings on Saturday with 40s returning to eastern KELOLAND. Temperatures should start to turn around on Sunday ahead of a strong cold front set to arrive Monday.
This front will likely give us a big shift in temperatures early next week. Sioux Falls may squeeze out one more day in the 50s on Monday, but the colder air will arrive during the day in northern KELOLAND and temperatures will likely stay in the 20s. The cold weather may linger for at least a day or two with some snow showers possible with the front…another reminder that winter is just around the corner.
