It’s very cold once again in KELOLAND after slightly warmer weather on Sunday.
The headline Monday morning is a wind chill advisory in effect until noon for most corners of KELOLAND. Wind chills will stay at -15 to -30. Highs in the afternoon will rebound to five above in Sioux Falls to around 16 in both Pierre and Rapid City. That “milder” air will move across eastern KELOLAND overnight, along with an increase in wind. Some blowing snow is possible toward midnight and after, so be aware of that for your early morning drive on Tuesday. Those stronger west winds will decrease as the day goes on and highs will rebound in the upper teens and lower 20s through Tuesday afternoon.
But just as soon as it warms up, much colder air will arrive late Tuesday night and Wednesday. We could even see another wind chill advisory and highs on Wednesday may struggle to get above zero.
Improvement in temperatures should return on Thursday with highs in the 20s and 30s in many areas. It looks like these temperatures should stay warmer until the weekend, when another cold front could bring us colder weather by Sunday, a trend we will watch.
