Morning snow showers brought some light snowfall to central and eastern KELOLAND. But the air was moisture-starved, so amounts were under 1".
Otherwise the winds aloft continue to blow from the northwest, which means the eastern half of KELOLAND will be stuck in the chilly teens for Sunday. Air will be much warmer in western South Dakota. Rapid City will have a breezy day, and a high near 50.
The much-anticipated warmup is still on tap for the first half of the week. We should see upper 20s and 30s in the estern half of the area, while Rapid city will bask in the 40s.
Unfortunately the weekend blast of Arctic air is still in the works. Strong winds on Thursday and Friday will be accompanied by light snow and that frigid air. We anticipate single digit highs beginning on Friday, and that below-normal temperatures will persist through Christmas week.
