It was another day to bundle up from the winter cold in KELOLAND, as below zero temperatures greeted many of us.
Since December, Sioux Falls has had a below zero low 33 of the past 67 days. Throw in this Thursday's below zero low, and it comes out to half of the days since December 1 we've been below zero. The coldest temperature so far this winter was on December 7, when Sioux Falls fell to 19 below.
We're already well above our average. Since 1990, Sioux Falls has averaged twenty-two days with below zero temperatures. When you add the below zero low temps from November, we pass 22 days with below zero lows in mid-January.
We'll slowly warm up over the next couple of days, but below zero lows can last well into March. Sioux Falls has been averaging a below zero low in March at least once over the past 23 years.
