Storm Center Update - Sunday PM
November 20, 2011, 7:46 PM
We'll have another cold night across KELOLAND, with light south winds moving over the snowpack. A few clouds over the southeast make for more reasonable conditions in Sioux Falls. Aberdeen, Pierre and Rapid City will all bottom out near 10 degrees tonight. Those south winds could bring fog into the Missouri River Valley, for the most part north of Pierre.
The warming trend got started today, just slowly. The snow-covered areas battle that cooling effect, but by Thanksgiving most of it will be gone. That steadily melting snow will allow us to get above the seasonal average by mid-week. Again, Thanksgiving looks like a great day; we really couldn't ask for better weather. The driving conditions look safer, as well. Through Wednesday and Thursday we are expecting clearing skies, stringing together quite a few of them this week.
Along with the warm stream comes dry conditions for the following seven days. A front brings slightly cooler weather and more cloudcover by Saturday, but as of now, there aren't indicators of snow or rain in your forecast.
Have a great week!
