The warm air will come to an end as a storm system and trailing cold front will move across the upper plains over the next couple of days. The change will first be felt in western KELOLAND Tuesday as northwest winds will blow at twenty-five to forty miles per hour. The strong winds will usher in much colder air with highs in the middle forties for Rapid City. Along with the colder air, isolated light rain and light snow showers will be possible in Rapid City and the Black Hills. Central and eastern KELOLAND will enjoy another day with warm temperatures Tuesday. Though the numbers will not be as warm as today, we’ll still have highs in the sixties in the central and east.
The cooler air will overtake ALL of KELOLAND by Wednesday with highs in the forties to lower fifties with breezy northwest winds. An isolated shower will be possible for everyone on Wednesday.
While cooler air will take over KELOLAND Thursday and into the weekend, temperatures will be closer to average with highs in the forties.
We’ll also watch a storm system to our south Thursday night and Friday morning. Right now, the system will move through eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. Any track to the north with this system will give southeast KELOLAND a chance at rain or snow Thursday night into Friday morning.
