SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Temperatures rose sharply over the noon hour, ahead of an approaching front. Sioux Falls hit a record 53 degrees. Mitchell hit a record 56. But not a cold front is surging through eastern South Dakota. Winds are switching to the northwest, 15-25 mph, and that will cool things down. A lot.
Tonight we'll have lows in the 20s. But tomorrow our high temperatures will only be in the upper 30s to low 40s - a dramatic change from the past three days. Temps will hover in that territory the rest of the week. Still - because there is no snow on the ground - even those temperatures are above average for the last week of the year.
We had a brown Christmas, and we expect a brown New Year as well. Other than a few sprinkles of rain on Thursday, our forecast is dry through the upcoming weekend and beyond.

It's due to fires in Canada. The northwest flow in the atmosphere has moved the smoke across the plains giving it a shade of orange.
