Thick clouds will remain as we go through this evening and tonight. There will still be hit and miss flurries and/or light snow showers but accumulations will stay light. Temperatures will only fall a couple of degrees or so in eastern KELOLAND tonight with widespread teens and low twenties likely. Central and western South Dakota will hit the middle twenties by daybreak.
Clouds will remain thick in eastern KELOLAND Tuesday morning, but sunshine will soon follow and temperatures will soar. Many locations will warm to the upper thirties to near forty in eastern and southeast KELOLAND (where there is little to no snow pack). Northeast South Dakota will be a little cooler, but still warmer than yesterday, as clouds will be thicker and the snow pack is deeper. Highs in the northeast will be near thirty. Central and western South Dakota will have widespread forties with lower fifties possible in Rapid City. Winds will be a little breezy in eastern and southeast KELOLAND with speeds of fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour likely, but the winds will not be as strong in northeast, central, or western South Dakota.
As of now, Wednesday will be the warmest day with highs in the forties and fifties. The exception will be northeast South Dakota where the snow pack will keep temperatures a little cooler.
After cooler weather returns Thursday and Friday, we’ll have to watch for wintry weather this coming weekend.
