There’s plenty of warmth today, if you can find it. Rapid City and Philip again hit 50°+ as a warm front blew through the west. East River was much colder, though, with highs in the 20s.
The strong winds moving in from west to east could cause some issues with blowing snow tonight and early tomorrow. Some spots along I-90 in central South Dakota got six inches of snow over the weekend. Reduced visibility could result from the wind and snow meeting.
A few weak snow showers will move in tonight both in central South Dakota and in the far northeast corner. This could make it into Sioux Falls and Rapid City tonight. Most will cool down to around 20. The breeze will move East River tomorrow and, as we’ve seen the past several days, pockets along I-29 could get reduced visibility. Though some are hoping for spring, many in the northeast still have a foot of leftover snow to melt off first.
Clouds will hang tough for much of our region this week but by Thursday we’ll have a big warming trend on the way. Our highs will jump 10-15 degrees in one day, with Sioux Falls fighting to hit 50 and Rapid City near 70. Compressional warming will help out in the Black Hills. From Friday through the weekend, mostly cloudy skies will move back in. Temperatures could be slightly cooler but will still be an improvement over this past weekend.
There is a chance of wintry mix on Saturday for Aberdeen and Rapid City. A widespread event with slightly better chances comes on Sunday but this could largely be rain. Next week a few computer models bring cooler air in, as a balance to what we’ll feel later this week.
