Storm Center Update - Monday PM

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.
