Storm Center Update - Wednesday PM
February 15, 2012, 2:29 PM
Clouds will continue to slowly depart eastern KELOLAND (from I-29 and east) this evening leaving behind clear to partly cloudy skies. Lows will fall to the teens and twenties tonight with light winds.
Thursday will be mostly sunny, dry, and warm. Highs will warm to the forties in many locations but lower fifties will be common in central and south central South Dakota. The warm air will be replaced by cooler temperatures on Friday, but we’ll also stay dry. Highs on Friday will be about five to twelve degrees cooler.
The weekend is looking dry with warming temperatures. We’ll start Saturday with lows in the single digits and teens, but the temperatures will rebound to the thirties in eastern KELOLAND to the forties in the central and west. Highs on Sunday will warm to the middle forties in eastern KELOLAND with high forties likely in central South Dakota. Clouds will thicken in western South Dakota with developing rain, so expect highs in the middle forties for the west.
As a storm system rolls through Sunday night and Monday, we’ll have to watch for rain and snow chances into early next week.
