The weather has improved overnight, but be alert to slick roads and scattered drifts from yesterday’s strong wind. The good news today will be the lighter winds and slowing warming temperatures. Look for highs in the lower 20s in eastern KELOLAND and upper 40s in the west.
The break from the winds will end late tonight as yet another clipper system pulls into KELOLAND from the northwest. There will be light snow and strong winds again. Winter weather advisories have been posted for Sioux Falls, Brookings, Watertown, Sisseton, and Worthington. Be aware of blowing snow and reduced visibilities much of the day with wind gusts into the 40 mph range. Winds will diminish by early evening in most areas in eastern KELOLAND.
Sunday is still looking warmer with highs in the 50s in western KELOLAND. Sioux Falls will even get close to 40, but that type of weather will be replaced by colder conditions on Monday and perhaps some light snow.
Much colder air is building again in Canada, so we will need to watch that next week. There are also signs that stronger winds could blow through KELOLAND again on Wednesday.
