Mostly sunny skies are forecast for much of KELOLAND today with breezy winds. The planner for Sioux Falls calls for highs in the upper 60s.
The wind forecast is strongest in western KELOLAND today where northwest winds may gust to 35mph. We have high fire danger out there once again, so be extra careful with these dry conditions.
Freeze conditions are possible tonight as colder moves in from the north. A freeze watch has been posted for Mobridge and Aberdeen. I expect we’ll have more frost and freeze conditions by Saturday night.
Tomorrow will be much cooler as Canadian air moves over KELOLAND. Highs will stay in the 50s over much of east.
The cooler weather will not last long. Warmer weather will start to return on Sunday and this will be the start of a warmer week ahead.
Speaking of warmer weather, the climate prediction center just released the 30-day outlook for October with warmer than normal conditions likely for much of the region.
The drought outlook is not looking good. The latest report was released yesterday which shows drought conditions remaining much of the same across KELOLAND.
The biggest news of the day is the new 90-day drought outlook through December, which shows drought conditions remaining with no improvement through the end of the year.
