Dry skies will prevail this evening and tonight as temperatures fall to the teens and twenties. South winds will increase for eastern KELOLAND to fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour. The winds will lead to areas of blowing snow where heavy snow fell last evening near Highway 14 in Minnesota and South Dakota. The blowing snow will cause slick spots and reduced visibilities during the overnight and into the morning.
Thursday will be warm with highs in the thirties in eastern South Dakota to the forties and fifties in central and western KELOLAND. The breezy south winds will continue through the morning along and east of Interstate 29. The winds will once again be responsible for areas of blowing snow causing reduced visibilities and slick conditions.
A cold front will bring an end to the warmth in KELOLAND Thursday night and Friday. A light wintery mix will have to be monitored late Thursday night into early Friday morning. It will be a quick chance for light precip and will be out of KELOLAND by 10:00. Highs will be in the twenties in eastern South Dakota to the thirties in central and western KELOALND.
The colder than average temperatures will last into Saturday, but Sunday is looking mild with highs in the forties in eastern South Dakota, fifties in central KELOLAND, and the sixties in the west. Temperatures will actually remain at or above average as we go into next week.
