January Outlook

January 4, 2014, 10:00 PM by Scot Mundt

January Outlook

People will continue to find ways to stay warm during this most recent shot of Arctic air. Though it may be hard to believe, but January is the month when the average highs and lows start to go up.

We begin the month with average highs in the twenties for central and eastern KELOLAND with thirties being average in the west. Lows are typically in the single digits and low teens. We finish the month just a couple of degrees warmer for both the highs and lows.

More cold is on the way next week, some which can be the coldest of the season so far. That combined with our snow pack in central and eastern South Dakota, it looks like the below average temps will dominate the month for the central and east.  Western South Dakota has a better chance of getting close to average.

Average snow amounts in January range from near four and a half in Rapid City to just over seven and a half in Sioux Falls.  We've had steady hits of snow last month, but that may not be the case in January. 

If the cold air stays, it might be one of those months when the bitter cold tries to squeeze out whatever moisture it can to give us snow.
