Any areas of fog and clouds this morning will go away by the afternoon. This means we’ll have mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures as highs reach the fifties and sixties. This will happen with southerly winds around ten to twenty miles per hour.
A cold front will slide through western South Dakota later this afternoon. It will allow for northwest winds of fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour. The cold front will move through all of KELOLAND tonight and bring in cooler air for Friday. Highs on Friday will be in the thirties and forties. Along with the cooler air, a light wintery mix will be possible. We’ll hold the wintery mix chance at twenty to thirty percent, so whatever falls will stay light.
The cold air will last into the weekend with highs in the twenties and thirties on Saturday. Slightly warmer air will come back for Sunday with highs in the thirties and forties. Light rain showers will develop in western and central South Dakota late Sunday afternoon and evening. The rain will eventually mix and switch to snow Sunday night into Monday. Some of the computer models are trying to give a couple of inches worth of snow for the southern half of KELOLAND. We’ll continue to monitor it.
The colder than average air will continue through much of next week.
