The next storm system will move through KELOLAND tonight. It will bring rain this evening to western South Dakota and it will move into central and northeast South Dakota tonight. As colder air works in, the rain will mix with and change to light snow. A couple inches of accumulation cannot be ruled out with the best chance in northeast KELOLAND and the Hills of western South Dakota. Southeast KELOLAND (from Mitchell to Worthington and south) has a chance to skip out of the rain tonight and tomorrow, so the possibility of precipitation in the southeast will stay low. Lows tonight will range from the twenties to thirties. Highs on Wednesday will vary from near fifty in southeast South Dakota to the middle thirties in northern South Dakota. Winds will be strong in western, central, and northeast South Dakota with speeds of twenty to thirty-five miles per hour from the north. Southeast KELOLAND will have increasing winds during the afternoon at fifteen to thirty.
The storm system will clear the area by Thursday, but temperatures will remain cold with highs in the forties. The cooler weather will get the boot on Friday as highs warm to the fifties and sixties. The weekend is still looking warm with highs in the sixties and seventies. We’re also watching for rain on Saturday.
