Though we do have some breaks here and there, skies will remain mostly cloudy for much of central and eastern KELOLAND through the evening and night. Western South Dakota will stay partly cloudy through the night. Lows will eventually fall to the teens and twenties.
Thursday will start with clouds in eastern KELOLAND, followed by increasing sunshine. Temperatures will be cooler, but still above average in many locations with highs in the twenties and thirties for eastern South Dakota to the forties in central and western KELOLAND.
As a storm system approaches from the southwest, temperatures will increase on Friday and Saturday. I wouldn’t be surprised to see temperatures warm to the forties in eastern and southeast KELOLAND for those days (northeast South Dakota will have a harder time warming, but the temperatures will still be above average). The system will bring a wintry mix to the southeast starting Saturday night into Sunday. Central and northeast South Dakota will have a good chance at all snow during that time. As the system pulls out of KELOLAND Sunday night into Monday, lingering snow showers will be possible. Much colder air will also move in on Monday. With the system still off the west coast, I’m not about to make any guesses as to how much snow will fall.
