Skies remain variably cloudy for much of KELOLAND as our cold front has slammed on the breaks in Iowa and Nebraska. A mid-level system trailing it continues to spit out sprinkles from Sioux Falls to Pine Ridge but very little of this is able to reach the ground. We expect this to nudge farther south by this evening. More energy will move into Iowa, giving us a decent chance of storms in Iowa or VERY far southern South Dakota. These would likely struggle to turn severe, if and when they do form. Most others will have clearing skies and light north winds.
Tomorrow should be a touch warmer in Sioux Falls. Most others will be very similar to today, with dry weather and passing cloud cover. Thursday and Friday should be quiet and an absolute treat. Highs should be at-or-below normal and we’ll have plentiful sunshine. A decent system arrives to the southern half of the area on Saturday. The latest trends coming in this afternoon push this back until fairly late Saturday and into early Sunday. Some of us are looking at good chances of rainfall.
Another big headline Saturday will be the cool temperatures. We’re leaning towards widespread highs in the upper 60s! After a cool weekend, the sun returns on Monday for many.
