The colder temperatures are back.
Tuesday's strong winds brought the winter chill back to KELOLAND, but it wasn't as cold as days past. Cold temperatures have been the theme this winter. In fact, we've already had more days with lows and highs below zero than usual in Sioux Falls.
Since 1990, Sioux Falls has averaged 22 days per year with an overnight low below zero. This year, it's already happened 20 times.
While it may seem odd to have highs below zero, it does happen. Sioux Falls usually experiences two days a year with highs below zero; this season we're already at four days.
This hit of cold air will soon be replaced by warmer weather on Wednesday, but another round of cold air quickly arrives on Thursday.
