Wind chill advisories and warnings remain in effect Tuesday morning for much of eastern KELOLAND. Wind chills below -20 can be expected in these areas, but improvement is around the corner starting this afternoon.
We have a very chilly start to the day with arctic high pressure over the heart of KELOLAND. While temperatures are starting well below zero in many areas, the mercury is expect to climb above zero in most areas Tuesday. The warmest weather will be found in western KELOLAND with around 20 in Rapid City.
Wednesday will be much warmer, but it may also be breezy at times. Patchy blowing snow can be expected again in far NE South Dakota and SW Minnesota. However, highs will jump back into the 30s in Sioux Falls, with widespread 40s West River.
A cold front will bring an end to the warmer weather late Wednesday and snow will develop across western KELOLAND by evening. This precipitation is forecast to spread to the southeast toward Sioux Falls through Thursday. Some freezing rain could mix with the snow in a few areas south of I-90, something to keep an eye on. We'll have more information on this system later Tuesday.
We expect another round of snow, mainly in southern KELOLAND late Friday into Saturday. It also will remain cold with highs staying in the upper teens to lower 20s into next weekend.
