Expect a mild Sunday; but colder temps, snow, and wind return Monday.
Sunday morning is starting with temperatures in the twenties and thirties in eastern KELOLAND where the numbers will warm to the upper thirties and lower forties. Central South Dakota has temperatures in the thirties and forties this morning with afternoon highs expected in the forties to near fifty. Western South Dakota has morning temps ranging from the thirties in Rapid City to the low fifties in Spearfish. Highs in western South Dakota will be mild with many locations peaking in the fifties. The afternoon will be mostly sunny with west/northwest winds of ten to twenty miles per hour.
A cold front will move through the upper plains tonight. The front will bring in thicker clouds and a chance for light snow in northeast South Dakota tonight. The snow will spread into central and southeast KELOLAND on Monday. While the snow amounts will stay light, an inch will be possible in eastern South Dakota to two inches in western Minnesota. Wind will once again create travel problems. Winds will average fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour with occasional gusts in the thirties. Expect areas of blowing snow and reduced visibility on Monday. Winds will be stronger in central and western South Dakota (twenty to thirty-five miles per hour), but blowing snow will not be as much of an issue. Highs will range from the teens and twenties in eastern South Dakota to the low forties in the west.
Cold high pressure will help scour out the clouds Monday night and Tuesday morning. This will allow for temperatures to fall to the teens and twenties below zero in northeast South Dakota to the single digits and low teens in southeast KELOLAND. The cold air will stay for much of the work week with highs in the teens and twenties in eastern South Dakota to the thirties and forties in the central and west.
