SIOUX FALLS, SD - Clouds are slowly decreasing across parts of eastern KELOLAND, while light snow is increasing across the west. A small disturbance will cross KELOLAND, with mainly just clouds and a few flurries likely. Some fog has also developed this morning around Aberdeen, Watertown, and Redfield. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s in the east, with lower 30s in the central, and near 40 in Rapid City.
Clearing skies will be likely in the west tonight, with mostly cloudy skies remaining in the east. Lows will drop to near 8 in Aberdeen and 12 in Sioux Falls and Pierre. Rapid City will be warmer in the lower 20s, but will rebound nicely on Wednesday to 50. Snow covered areas East River will not be as warm, but some melting is likely with highs in the lower to middle 30s. If we didn’t have the snow, 40s would be likely.
Cooler winds will arrive Wednesday night and Thursday, so temperatures will drop slightly and it will feel colder with northwest winds. Those winds will increase again by Saturday as much colder air drops in from Canada. Any precipitation through the forecast looks light at this time.
After a chilly weekend, the weather is looking warmer early next week and no major storms are in the forecast.
