In eastern KELOLAND, cold air has become the norm.
The warmest temperature we've seen all year happened back in January when temperatures climbed into the mid and upper 40s.
Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, Huron and Watertown all experienced their warmest high temperature in January. Mitchell warmed to 46 early in February. And just the past weekend, central and western South Dakota felt a touch of spring with 53 degrees in Pierre and 60 in Rapid City.
The culprits behind the cool weather have been the snow depth, cloud cover and the cold northwest flow that's been over eastern KELOLAND for much of the winter.
While there's a quick warm-up this week, cooler air will return this weekend and early next week.
