It was another bitterly cold morning in KELOLAND. Temperatures fell well below zero with some in northern KELOLAND at twenty below or less.
It was even colder in KELOLAND than Alaska. Temps in northern Alaska were in the teens below zero with an isolated twenty below. The twenty below matched Aberdeen at eight this morning. But in Oak Creek, which is north of Mobridge, the temperature fell to twenty-nine below zero.
This type of set-up is the Alaska connection. The jet stream is able to push the warmer air into Alaska, but while that happens, much colder air pours into the upper plains, including right here in KELOLAND.
There is some good news temperatures will slowly warm tonight, so we won't be as cold Thursday morning. The warming will continue with highs close to twenty degree warmer. For KELOLAND weather, I'm Meteorologist Scot Mundt.
