Wind chill advisories will continue into Friday afternoon for much of KELOLAND.
The combination of bitter cold air and wind will create wind chills in the teens and 20s below zero. Thursday night’s air temperature will fall to the teens below in many locations with mostly clear skies and light winds. Some areas in northern and western South Dakota will fall to near twenty below.
The arctic air will hang around for Friday and Saturday with highs only in the single digits. In fact, parts of northern KELOLAND may struggle to get above zero. While winds will not be as strong on Friday, we’ll still have wind chills well below zero.
Temperatures will slowly warm Saturday night into Sunday morning as clouds move in and light snow starts to fall. While the amounts of moisture will be very limited, it won’t take much to squeeze out and inch or two of snow on Sunday.
Temperatures will remain below average through next week.
