Clouds and wind will continue to decrease in eastern KELOLAND this evening. Many locations will have clear skies and light winds tonight. Lows will fall to the single digits in eastern South Dakota with a couple locations in northeast South Dakota falling below zero. Teens will be likely in central and western South Dakota.
Clear skies can be expected for Wednesday along with warmer air. Highs will range from near thirty in eastern South Dakota, low forties in central KELOLAND to the middle fifties in Rapid City. The warmth will continue into Thursday with highs in the middle to upper thirties in eastern South Dakota, to near fifty in central KELOLAND and the upper fifties in the west. You should be able to notice a lot of melting Wednesday and Thursday.
Clouds will thicken on Friday and winds will become northeast. This will allow for cooler temperatures in all but southeast South Dakota. Widespread thirties and forties are likely on Friday. A wintry mix will be possible for the weekend as temperatures hold in the thirties and low forties. Cool and dry high pressure to the north will battle the increase in moisture from the storm system approaching from the southwest. This might eventually push the precip chances farther south; we’ll watch it from the KELOLAND Live Doppler Storm Center.
