Areas of clouds continue this morning in KELOLAND with a few flurries in central KELOLAND. Highs today will range from the upper 30s in Rapid City to the upper 20s in Aberdeen. Winds will be strongest today in SW MN and NW IA with gusts over 30mph from the northwest.
Flurries are in the forecast tonight for the southeast, but nothing significant is in the forecast. Lows will be in the mid to upper teens with north winds at 5-15mph.
The weather pattern will remain pretty quiet the rest of the week. There is a hint of snow chances returning to western and central SD Thursday night or Friday with a weak system moving through from the northwest. Otherwise, temperatures will remain cool in the east with highs in the mid to upper 20s in Sioux Falls and Aberdeen.
Warmer weather will build into western SD this weekend with highs in the lower 50s both Saturday and Sunday in Rapid City. That warmer air will be associated with the next clipper system that will drop into the northern plains early next week. That will bring us chance of rain or snow, with colder weather to follow behind it after Tuesday. No early start to spring just yet.
