Temperatures Monday morning fell to the teens and twenties below zero.
Another well below zero night is in store with lows falling to the teens and twenties below in eastern KELOLAND. Lows in central South Dakota will fall to the single digits to near ten below while western South Dakota will have slowly warning temperatures. I wouldn’t be surprised if western South Dakota warms to the teens and twenties above zero by sunrise.
Winds will be light Monday night, but they’ll still be strong enough to create wind chills from minus twenty-five to near minus fifty at times. Numerous Wind Chill Warnings and Wind Chill Advisories remain in effect until Tuesday morning.
Temperatures will rebound to above average highs Tuesday afternoon for much of KELOLAND. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if some areas stay below zero. Winds will be light at five to ten miles per hour underneath a partly cloudy sky. Light snow showers and flurries will also be possible, but amounts will stay less than an inch. Rapid City will warm to thirty-four degrees.
Clouds will be thick on Wednesday, so don’t expect much to change for the high temperatures, but lows should be held in check. Expect the morning temps in the single digits above and below zero.
Much warmer weather will move through KELOLAND during the second half of the work week. Highs will return to the twenties and thirties for eastern South Dakota while the thirties and forties return to the central and west. As of now, the weekend will have widespread thirties and forties.
