It’s another very cold morning in KELOLAND with overnight lows dropping into the teens below zero again in many areas. Tired of the cold? Good news: a warmer trend is just around the corner.
First, Monday’s high in Sioux Falls will jump back to around 5, with 1 in Aberdeen, 12 in Pierre and 20 in Rapid City.
While those numbers are still well below normal, the lows tonight won’t be as cold as Monday morning. A warm front is forecast to move east during the night, bringing south winds to the region on Tuesday and warmer weather. Highs on Tuesday will be in the lower 40s in Rapid City, with lower to mid 20s in Aberdeen and Sioux Falls.
That trend will continue on Wednesday, perhaps accompanied by some light snow Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.
Highs in the 30s are expected by Wednesday in much of eastern KELOLAND, with 40s West River. The Sioux Falls area may see the warmest weather by late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning as the next clipper system moves into KELOLAND from the northwest.
This will bring us a windy day on Thursday along with falling temperatures. Right now, the worst of the colder temperature should brush northeastern areas.
The weekend is still several days away, but there’s good evidence to support warmer temperatures both Saturday and Sunday. Highs should be in the 30s and 40s, with 50s possible in Rapid City.
