Clouds have been socked in northeast and east central KELOLAND this morning and afternoon, and now they are taking over southeast KELOLAND. The increase in cloud cover will continue through the evening and give much of KELOLAND cloudy skies for the overnight. Lows tonight will fall to the teens and twenties with light south winds.
The sun will return for Wednesday with temperatures warming to the thirties and forties. Highs will range from a cool thirty-one in Aberdeen to a mild fifty-one in Rapid City. Winds will favor a southerly direction at five to fifteen miles per hour. The winds will be stronger in central and western South Dakota with speeds of fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour, from the northwest. Slightly cooler air will return on Thursday, but many locations will remain above average.
Friday and Saturday will be warm days also, but we’re watching for a wintry mix in southeast KELOLAND on Sunday. All three computer models (American, European, and Canadian) give southeast KELOLAND a chance for precip, but the timing is different. The European and the Canadian are quicker than the American model. The European and Canadian want to bring things through on Sunday; the American moves things in late Sunday into Monday.
