Blizzard conditions continue in NE South Dakota, where frequent wind gusts over 50 mph are occurring. No travel is advised in Day and Roberts counties. The blizzard warning continues for that area and western Minnesota until midnight.
Wind chill advisories and warnings are also in effect until noon tomorrow, because of the strong winds combined with the Arctic air that is pouring into the region.
We expect a prolonged period (over 36 hours) of subzero temperatures in eastern South Dakota from tonight through much of the day on Tuesday.
Despite sunshine, Monday’s highs will be a few degrees below zero, with a NW breeze. Tuesday will only be a little warmer.
Wednesday is looking like the warmest day of the week, with highs at- or above-normal, in the 20s and 30s East River. But then another cold front sweeps through. The rest of the week will feature at- or below-normal temperatures, with occasional light snows.
It appears our cold spell will continue into the month of February.
