Happy first day of the Meteorological Spring BUT it couldn’t feel more NOT like spring. Tonight’s lows across KELOLAND will be in the teens below zero. For northeast corner, there is a Wind Chill Warning from 9PM tonight till noon Sunday, wind chills are expected to be in the -30s to -40s. For everyone else, there is a Wind Chill Advisory in effect till Noon CST (11am MST) Sunday. Wind chill values will be in the -20s and possibly -30s.
The cold temperatures continue into Sunday with afternoon highs around zero but it does look like clouds will start to move out of KELOLAND so central and eastern South Dakota could see some sun.
Next week will be the beginning of a slow warm up, temperatures still in the single digits for Monday but every day after that has potential to be five to ten degrees warmer than the day before with western KELOLAND possibility getting up to the 40s and 50s on Thursday. Chance for snow in east and central KELOLAND Tuesday night and a chance for a winter mix Friday for eastern KELOLAND. The winter event on Friday has a lot of uncertainty associated with it, since it is a week out, but just something keep it in mind.
