A warmer day is ahead for much of KELOLAND with highs in the 50s and 60s. There will also be a wind advisory for parts of NW IA and SW MN this afternoon. A cold front will be on the move late this afternoon, and areas of rain or snow are expected tonight.
While heavy rain is not forecast, some amounts of .25” to .50” are possible across the southeast. The best chances of snow will north of Sioux Falls late tonight, where a “nuisance” 1-2” will be possible. A few trends are a little higher than that, but temperatures in the 30s should limit some of the accumulations. Stay tuned for more on this later today. The rain may mix with some slushy snow tomorrow in the Sioux Falls area as well as tomorrow as temperatures cool courtesy of NW winds.
Highs tomorrow will be much cooler with readings in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Look for another cool day on Friday with highs staying steady in the upper 30s to lower 40s once again.
A significant warming trend is still in the forecast this weekend. The warmest day will be Saturday West River, with conditions turning warmest East River on Sunday. Either way, widespread 50s and 60s are likely. The warmer trend will come to an end Sunday night with areas of rain and snow returning to KELOLAND. The cooler trend will likely continue Monday and Tuesday, typical of late March.
