KELOLAND had clear blue skies today which caused a lot of snow to melt and the rest of the week and this weekend will continue that trend. Tonight will be a cold night with lows in the single digits and teens underneath clear skies.
Thursday will have clear skies again and afternoon highs a little warmer, reaching the 30s for most of the region with 40s to near 50° found in the west.
The forecast doesn’t change much for Friday and the weekend. Warmer air will keeping pushing into the Midwest, causing highs to reach the 30s, 40s, and even 50s are likely in western South Dakota. All of this will be under sunny to mostly sunny skies. One thing to keep in mind is as we melt this snow, the chances for fog to develop overnight will go up.
Next week will have no break in the trend, at least for the first half. Sunny skies and highs reaching the 40s and 50s are expected. It’s the second half of the week where we could see some changes that could bring the temperatures back down to near average and some wintery mix is possible as that cooler air invades the Midwest.
