Record-breaking cold weather has returned to KELOLAND with lows in the mid teens in Sioux Falls. Aberdeen has been as low as 9…very cold for this time of year. Temperatures will rebound today with more sunshine with highs in the upper 40s in Aberdeen, lower 50s at Sioux Falls, and near 60 or above from Rapid City to Pierre.
The next storm system will drop south quickly into KELOLAND tonight, giving the northeast a good chance of rain changing to snow. Areas of rain and snow will also be possible for Pierre and Rapid City. The best chance of accumulating snow will be in the northeast, where a few inches of slushy snow will be possible in the morning.
Colder, blustery northwest winds are likely behind the storm system. We are looking at colder than normal weather on Thursday with more rain and snow possible West River.
If you are looking forward to warmer weather, this Easter weekend should be much better. Highs by Sunday should be in the upper 60s or lower 70s in many areas. We will be watching the pattern next week for warmer weather. Timing on chances of rain look difficult at this point, but it’s possible much of the week will be above normal.
