If you thought Monday was nice, just wait until Tuesday.
Eastern KELOLAND got yet another taste of winter Sunday night and early Monday morning with freezing rain, sleet and light snow. The new snow didn't last long as the sun was out for much of Monday and temperatures warmed above average.
Many locations made it to the 40s and 50s with more warm weather on the way through midweek. In fact, Wednesday will be the warmest day for a lot of us with parts of eastern KELOLAND making it to the 50s.
The last time Sioux Falls had a 50-degree day was November 20, 2013, when the city warmed to 52. Aberdeen's last 50 was November 19 with a high of 53.
Pierre's last 50 was just a couple of weeks ago, on January 29, 2014. But the last time they made it to 60 was November 19 with 65 degrees.
Rapid City hit 64 on Sunday; the last time it hit sixty-four in Rapid City was November 13 and the last time it hit 70 was October 25.
Whether parts of eastern KELOLAND hit 50 or not later this week, one thing is for sure; there will be plenty of melting of snow and ice over the next couple of days.
