Warmer Weather In KELOLAND

February 18, 2014, 7:11 AM by Stephanie Gregory

Warmer Weather In KELOLAND

This week we're seeing temperatures we haven't seen in a very long time across KELOLAND. This slight warm up is causing some people to dream of warm sunny skies.

"I love to take pictures and I love to swim in the summer. Hopefully it warms up so I can do that soon," Alyssa Voeltz said.

People, like Voeltz, are waiting for a warm up.

"I don't like it, but because we chose to live in South Dakota, we have to learn not to mind it," Lynne Steele said.

According to KELOLAND Meteorologist Scott Mundt, this has been one of the coldest winters on record.

"If the winter were to end right now, December through February, if it were to end right now we'd be the seventh coldest," Mundt said.

With an average temperature of just under 12 degrees this season, Mundt says don't put away the cold winter gear just yet.

"Anytime we make that transition to a different season, especially going from winter to spring that is where we can get some decent snow storms," Mundt said.

People say they are ready to drop the scarves and shed the layers.

"I really don't mind the cold that much, but it's been really cold, as in every night has been below zero. I hope it gets warm soon," Voeltz said.

As the mercury continues to rise, many hope that it is here to stay.

"I would rather have a day like today when it's sunny and clean and melting and we know that it's going to get nice soon," Steele said.
